Soul-Searching Spanish Salmon Sauté

Is it really pointless to search your soul and figure out what's wrong with your agenda?

Soul-Searching Spanish Salmon


If you search your soul, you know it's best to eat heart-healthy fish a few times a week.  This is a dish that is not only healthy but delicious.
Makes 4 to 6 servings

2 Tbsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (10 oz.) mild diced tomatoes with green chilies (Ro*Tel)
1-1/2 lb. salmon fillet (3/4-inch thick), seasoned with salt and pepper
1 fresh lime, halved
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

Heat oil in medium skillet on medium-high; add garlic.  Cook 1 minute or until garlic is fragrant.

Add tomatoes; bring to boil.  Add salmon.  Reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer 10 minutes or until barely pink in center.  Squeeze half of lime over salmon; sprinkle with cilantro.

Serve salmon with crisp green salad and remaining lime, cut into 4 wedges.

If you prefer a spicier dish, use hot diced tomatoes with green chilies, or add 1 jalapeno or serrano pepper, seeded and minced, with tomatoes.
