If you’re like me, you’ve got spring fever right about now. You’re looking for meals that are bright and fresh. Right? Well, what could be brighter or fresher than poached salmon with spring peas and greens? And it’s so easy — I can’t wait to show you how.
Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
If you can boil water, you can make this meal. All you do is add a few strips of lemon zest to a pan of boiling water, then add salmon fillets, along with snap peas to cook for just a few minutes. Toss the peas with some watercress, mint, and a bit of butter. Serve it all up on a platter; it couldn’t be prettier!
