- Spring Vegetable Mash Topped with Pan Seared Salmon
I go crazy when I stroll though the produce department these days – the bins are bursting with spring fruits and veggies. I want to take home armfuls and eat them all! Hooooo-ray for the chance toÂ buy produce when it is seasonal, fresh and frugal!
I have discovered that purees, or chunky purees – more like a “mash” – are simple, flavorful and easy to get on the table in minutes. Hey! Why should potatoes have all the fun? I sauteed asparagus, peas and green onions and then pulsed them in the food processor (leaving it in small chunks) with a spoonful of sour cream and mint leaves. This only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish. This amazing “mash” can be topped with a chicken or fish fillet that has been pan seared for an almost effortless entree. And, take a look at that plating – A Four Star Quality restaurant entree in minutes!
I made a bed of the mash and then topped it with pan seared salmon – Fresh! Flavorful! Fabulous!
