Roasted Salmon with Lentils and Braised Leeks

 

Here’s a simple healthy dinner recipe that is not only full of flavour, but full of protein, fiber and healthy fat – Salmon with lentils and braised leeks. It’s pretty humble in a way, but we really love this combination and the lentils give the salmon a bit of earthiness here. A truly nourishing meal.

Roasted Salmon with Lentils and Braised Leeks
Step 1

Melt the butter in a large pan over medium heat and add the leeks, cut-side down. Cook for approximately 3 minutes, until golden. Reduce the heat, flip the leeks over and pour the lentils around them. Add the chicken stock, 1 tbsp oil and the agave, then season. Partially cover and cook for 12 minutes. Remove the leeks from the pan and keep warm.
