Roasted Salmon and Lentils

The rest of French Fridays with Dorie are making Riviera Fish Soup (page 92).  We love fish but I was not sure about a fish soup with a tomato base.  I am not a fan of Manhattan Clam Chowder so I was worried about this one.  I look forward to see how it comes out for everyone. We decided on another fish make-up Roasted Salmon and Lentils (page 300).  Our favorite fish is salmon and we love lentils.

This meal was a hit for us, even on the leftovers, but I am not sure it counts that I made the dish. My husband was in charge of the salmon, which he cooked on the BBQ.  I made the lentils but I did not puree some of the lentils like the recipe called for. My husband likes whole lentils and not lentil soup so I was worried about the puree preparation. I also added extra carrots, celery and onions to the mix since I did not want to make a separate vegetable.  All in all it was a great meal and would make it again.
These recipes are part of an international cooking group working our way through Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan.  To see more roasted salmon and lentils go here.  To see more Riviera Fish Soup go here.

  1. Ooh, salmon and lentils has long been my go-to dinner since long before Dorie. We love this combination and eat it quite regularly.

    As for the soup, I liked it, but the fish bones were a pain and I will not be making it again soon unless I hear that it also works with just a boneless fillet.

  4. That is a great make up dish! Glad it was such a hit for you all as well! The soup was okay for us. I'll make it again, but I'm not going to mill it.

  5. I never made this one...hmmm. Looks fantastic. You can try the Riviera soup with out the tomatoes, just add fish stock. I've had it like this, don't forget the Pernod.

  12. LOL- I am with Mardi. I think one week I even had my teenage son make a dish (boy, that must have been some week, now that I think of it..) It all counts. Even better that your family enjoyed it and the leftovers. No greater praise than that !

  14. It absolutely counts! Going rogue on recipes is always encouraged - at least by me...
