Today’s recipe is sponsored by Anderson Seafoods.

The hubby is still dieting – he really finds this plan he found to be very effective. He’s lost around 50 pounds this year and he says it’s really been pretty easy all things considered. It’s still a bit challenging for me for create interesting and tasty meals for him within the confines of a 350 calorie limit but I am still managing to come up with meals that make him happy. Most nights I roast vegetables with vinegar and serve them over brown rice as it’s a filling plate of food but every now and then I get a little fancier for him.

I knew he was going to have a difficult day at work so I wanted him to come home to a meal he would really enjoy despite it being a diet day. That meant I turned to salmon as the focus of the meal. It’s his favorite fish and even though he couldn’t have a full sized portion I knew he would savor what he could have. Especially since I had high quality fish from Anderson Seafoods. The hardest problem I have with these meals is making sauces as I can’t use any fats at all. I usually end up making a balsamic reduction of some kind. I wanted to do something different with this so I went with mustard – although I did still use vinegar. I think I came up with a salmon recipe that he would love – and I was right.

Salmon on Apples, Onions and Peppers with Mustard Sauce - a 350 Calorie Meal

Salmon on Apples, Onions and Peppers with Mustard Sauce 

Serves 1

3,5 oz salmon fillet
1.75 oz sliced onions
2 oz sliced green peppers
3.5 oz peeled, cored apple, cut into strips
1 tsp marjoram divided
1/2 tsp dried thyme
3 TBS apple cider vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
salt

Preheat oven to 350°

onions-and-peppers
Saute onions and peppers in a nonstick pan until soft. Add about 1/4 tsp salt. Add a little water if needed.

add-apples
Add the apples, thyme and half of the marjoram. Saute until the apples start to soften. Add water if needed to keep things from sticking.
Add the apple cider vinegar to a small pan and reduce by half. Add the Dijon mustard and the other 1/2 tsp of marjoram. Stir well to combine. Set aside.
While the vinegar is reducing heat a small cast iron or other oven safe saute pan to med-high. Salt the salmon fillet and cook it on each side for about a minute.
Place it in the preheated oven to finish cooking – about 8 minutes depending on the thickness of your fillet.

To plate place the vegetables first, top with the salmon and drizzle the sauce over top.

Hubby really enjoyed this meal. The salmon was delicious – it had just the hint of a crust from cooking in the hot cast iron pan but the center was flaky and moist. He loved the mustard sauce and he said the apples were the perfect hint of sweet to complement the mustard.

Of course the salmon from Anderson Seafoods is high quality – everything I get from them is. The links in the post are affiliate links so if you use them to make a purchase I do get a small commission.
