TFF Pan-Roasted Salmon With Roasted Root Vegetables and Lentil Stew



I'm happy to say that Dear Tyler did it again !!! I wanted to make something Indian for this great idea but my mother in law came with some fresh salmon (in Rome it's almost impossible to have a different cut for it : fish mongers are lazy !) so I decided for this rich dish !
I really loved it , the lentils (I used the tiny ones from island of Pantelleria near Sicily) were so rich in flavour and the roasted root vegetables were nicely caramelized and with a hint of the apple vinegar. Actually both could stand even without the salmon that was the simplest one to make. I warmly suggest that you try this recipe or any third of it !!
Please visit the TFF blogroll to get many more ideas !!

When salmon pair with delicious stew like this, I can eat a lot of it. Salmon by itself, just with salt and pepper, I can't swallow it.
Cheers,

I'll trade you - you can have my array of fish cuts and I'll take your Roman weather. :-)
Fish looks yummy, btw.

I love the sound of lentils combined with salmon! Your dinner looks restaurant-worthy; glad you found a great recipe(s) to use for that salmon find.

What a beautiful plate of food. I love recipes where you would make any of the components again on their own. This looks delicious!

Eat salmon all the time and have never done it with root vegetables... perfect for winter and early spring. Wonderful idea.

Looks like wonderful salamon and great veggies. Like the way you so effectively separated the beets!
