Lemon Lime Salmon with French Green Lentils

As a part of our new efforts in helping you get through stay-at-home orders, we've created Neighborhood Meal Deals that really pack a punch. These kits not only include everything you need to make the meal, but full-sized products that can carry on into other meals you make at home. After you're done using them up, the bottle of oil and jar of spice blend are recyclable or refillable with a discount at the shop. 

We love the Salmon BundleWe love the bright, classic flavors of lemon, lime and dill for salmon, so we just had to create a dinner for this. Though the dinner bundle, does not include the lentil side dish, we still think you should give the recipe a go!


2 Salmon Filets
Lemon Lime Salmon Rub
Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

Season both sides of the salmon with Lemon Lime Salmon Rub along with a little salt and pepper. Allow to sit at room temp for 15 minutes. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.

Drizzle in the Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Sear the salmon on one side for 5-7 minutes or until deep golden brown. You will be able to see the opaque pink section of cooked salmon grow higher on the edge of the salmon.

When this reached 1/3 of the height of the filet, drizzle in a little extra oil, flip the filet and reduce the heat. You may even want to turn the heat off and allow the residual heat of the cast iron to complete the cooking process. Cook for an additional 3-6 minutes or until the desired internal temperature. Serve with a spritz of fresh lemon.

We love this salmon on a bed of wilted spinach or kale. It's lovely with a sweet potato on the side, too! Lentil pair perfectly as well. Read on for the recipe!

Ingredients for the Lentils:
1 cup French Green Lentils
1/2 yellow onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, grated
1 tsp Rosemary Salt
Water or stock to cover the Lentils

Directions for the Lentils:
Bring all ingredients to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 12-15 mins or until the lentils are tender. Add more water if needed during the cooking process to keep the lentils submerged. Taste and adjust with salt and pepper. Use a slotted spoon to portion out the lentils.
