Prep time: 2 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes (tops)
Cost: $5.85 (or $1.40/serving)
salmon: 4.40, lettuce: 1.00, lemon: .40, other stuff: .05
1 Tbsp butter
1 shallot (I didn't have so used a dash of onion powder. I think a small leak or green onion would be good too)
2 tsp grated lemon zest (that of one small lemon and if you skip this, you'll be sad)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 C low-sodium chicken broth (water with some types of seasonings might do the trick too)
4 skinless salmon fillets (about 6 oz. each)
salt and pepper
2 heads loose-ish leaved lettuce, chopped
chopped dill (for garnish and yumminess; I forgot it and missed it about halfway through the meal)
I large pot, melt butter. Add shallots (or onion-y substitution) and stir occasionally until tender.
Add lemon zest and juice. Add broth. Bring to a simmer.
Add salmon. Cover and cook 3 minutes.
Add chopped lettuce. Cover and cook until lettuce is wilted and salmon is cooked, about 6-9 minutes.
Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve topped with dill.
We had this with a side of rice and I found it light and satisfying both.
