Why We Like It

This may seem like a simple combination of flavors, but it is incredibly delicious!  And, it looks like you made a fancy meal but it is so easy to put together!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

Saute the Veggies:

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp butter (or olive oil)
  • 2 leeks (ends trimmed and sliced, light green and white part only, or use about 1 1/2 cups of thinly sliced white onion)
  • 8 oz fresh green beans (ends trimmed if desired)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves (finely diced, or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)

Add oil and butter to a large skillet over medium high heat.  When hot, add everything else and saute, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes until tender.

Add Creaminess to Veggies:

  • 3 Tbsp sour cream (or plain nonfat Greek yogurt)

Add to the skillet and stir to combine with the veggies.  Transfer the veggie mixture onto a large greased rimmed baking sheet (or a 9 inch x 13 inch baking dish).

Add the Salmon and Seasonings:

  • 4 skinless boneless salmon fillets
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill (chopped, or 2 tsp of dried dill)
  • 1 Tbsp capers

Add the salmon to the baking sheet, nestling them down into the green bean and leek mixture.  Add everything else on top of the salmon and veggies.  Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through (it will flake in the center with a fork).

Serve and Enjoy!

Quick Tips

Leeks are actually similar to large green onions.  Sometimes they have dirt in between the layers so try slicing them first (you should only use the white and light green part).  Trim off the end, then slice and place in a colander to rinse.  Pat them dry and then continue to use in your recipe.  See our coaching tip for more on leeks.

Your salmon cooking time will depend on how thick your salmon fillets are — consider checking it at 20 minutes, and then cook until as done as you like it.
