We are so excited to bring you this everyday meal! It's delicious, fresh and full of nutrients. I absolutely love salmon and while Jamie tends to be a bit of a salmon “snob” (he only likes smoked salmon or wild caught salmon), I love all salmon and for good reasons!
Now, pair this pan roasted salmon with roasted beets and citrus quinoa that is high in fiber, protein and has essential amino acids and you have yourself a true nutrient powerhouse meal. The best part? It tastes pretty darn delicious!
To make the best pan roasted salmon, you only need four key ingredients. While you can of course get creative and add other flavors and spices to the salmon, use the below ingredients as a base and as you start cooking salmon more, add what you like! Here's your grocery list:
You can take a look here for the oven roasted beets and here for the citrus quinoa!
Making pan roasted salmon isn't difficult but what can be tricky is getting that crispy top we all love with a tender and perfectly cooked center. The reason why pan roasting is a great option for salmon is because it allows you to showcase the beautiful texture in the meat. When properly pan roasted, the salmon fillet will have a beautiful spectrum of textures that scales from the crispy and salty crust on the top side, down to an almost custard-like interior where the fish will be barely cooked.
We love serving the salmon on top of the chilled citrus quinoa mixed in with a bit of arugula and sliced roasted beets. Give it a try and let us know how it turned out!
Cheers and eat well!
