Since returning from our house scouting trip to Maine, I have become increasingly aware of how much stuff we have. As excited as I am for this next adventure, I am equally dreading the act of packing our house. But it’s happening, hafta do it, so might as well start. And since the kitchen is my domain, I decided to start there. What better way to use up leftover items than to throw them into a dinner? Thus, this Seared Salmon with Lentil Pilaf and Mint Yogurt Sauce came to be.
One of my favorite dinner pairings is salmon with lentils. Both are so versatile and play off each other so well. This dish came together when I started digging through forgotten items we had stashed in our pantry. This Seared Salmon with Lentil Pilaf and Mint Yogurt Sauce dish is so easy enough to pull off on a week night, yet could pass for a dinner party entree. Plus, it’s a great dish to use up any extra veggies you have lying around. Cut them up into small pieces and sauté them before adding your lentils!
