Fish always seems so fancy to me. People are super impressed when you serve them fish and, honestly, I’m super impressed with myself when I serve fish. Aren’t you? That is how I felt serving this Pan Seared Salmon over Cauliflower + Carrot Mash with Olive Relish. I know – it’s a mouthful to say, but it is also a delicious symphony of flavors in your mouth to eat.
I did a whole week of meals without starches and bad carbs this last week. This Pan Seared Salmon dish was part of it and I was surprised at how well received it was. I’m always trying to walk the line between making the super healthy food that I like to eat and making the kind of food I know the rest of my family likes.
Well, sometimes I just say “I don’t care!” and cook whatever I feel like making even if I don’t think everyone will like it. This was one of those meals.
But everyone loved it! Clean plates and compliments from everyone.
My favorite part is the olive and tomato relish. So much flavor from two different kinds of olives and finely diced red onion. Grape tomatoes are in there too. I’m pretty sure I put tomatoes in everything. It’s a rare day when I don’t, that’s for sure.
My other shining star when it comes to fish is One Skillet Cod Veracruz. It’s seriously good and since it’s cooked in one skillet, it’s an easy weeknight meal that’s also healthy and delicious.
