Recipe Directions for Salmon and Lentils With Moroccan Tomato Sauce Ingredients

  1. Preparation

  2. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring lentils and broth to boil; reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until lentils are tender.

  3. Meanwhile, put all whole spices in a grinder and process until well ground or combine ground spices in a small bowl.

  4. Coat nonstick skillet lightly with vegetable cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Add shallot and garlic; sauté about 5 minutes until translucent. Mix in 1 1/4 teaspoons of the spice mixture, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes.

  5. With electric blender, pulse tomatoes just until roughly puréed; add to pan with hot pepper sauce (if using) and heat through. Set aside.

  6. In small bowl, mix remaining spices, salt and pepper; rub onto both sides of salmon fillets.

  7. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat lightly with vegetable cooking spray; add salmon to pan without crowding. Sauté salmon 4 minutes; turn, cover and cook 3 to 6 minutes longer, depending on thickness, or until cooked throughout.

  8. Sear two tablespoons almonds into lentils; divide among four plates. Top with salmon and tomato sauce. Sprinkle with remaining almonds.
