Overall preparation was simple for this recipe. The beets were pre-sliced and made for an easy salad / side for the salmon. The two pieces of salmon fillet were beautifully cut with the skin on. They fried up nicely in a non-stick pan as directed. The Piccata sauce was also super simple and incredibly flavorful. This was a great way for me to practice preparing pan seared salmon. A non stick pan is definitely your best friend for this.
The beats and peppers were easy to prepare in the oven.
Salmon was pre-sliced for two portions.
Confession: I expected this to be my least favorite dish of this week, yet it ended up being one of my favorite all time dishes from Green Chef! I conquered my fear of preparing fish with this recipe! The piccata sauce is a game-changer for me. In the past I have always seasoned simply with just lemon but I never really enjoyed it the flat flavor against the fish. The capers in garlic butter were just perfect. I had never made this sauce before or used capers in this way. If you have a fear of pan searing fish please practice this recipe and be sure to use a non stick pan as instructed. I didn’t expect to love this dish but I really do. I couldn’t stop thinking about the sauce days later. My hubby, who knows how nervous I am about cooking fish, said that the fish was perfectly cooked, and was made for the buttery sourness of the piccata sauce. The beets and bell pepper side provided a fresh and sweet balance that ended with the crunch of a walnut for additional complexity. Every bite was a treat with flavors and textures that all made this into a simple to prepare and memorable dish from Green Chef.
