Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 rib celery diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 cup dried green lentils
  • 2 1/2 cups green beans trimmed and quartered
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomato
  • 2 salmon fillets (3 oz/85 g each)
Vinaigrette:
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper

Method

In saucepan, heat half of the oil over medium heat; cook carrots, onion, celery, jalapeño pepper and garlic, stirring, until softened, about 4 minutes.

Stir in coriander, cumin, 3/4 tsp of the salt and 1/2 tsp of the pepper; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.

Add lentils and 3 cups water; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, adding more water if mixture dries out, until lentils are tender, 25 to 30 minutes.

Stir in green beans and tomato; cover and cook until beans are tender, about 5 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, brush salmon with remaining oil; sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper. Broil on greased baking sheet, 3 inches (8 cm) from heat, until fish flakes easily when tested, 4 to 6 minutes.

Vinaigrette: In small bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

To serve, divide lentil mixture among 4 plates. Break salmon into chunks and scatter over top; drizzle with vinaigrette.
