Plated: Seared Salmon with Butter Lettuce Salad and Tomato Sherry Vinaigrette (Home Cookin’)

For as long as I have been cooking (and eating) salmon, I’ve always paired it with white rice. (Those who know me well know that I am completely addicted to white jasmine rice.) Having salmon with just salad and no carbs was quite a deviation from my norm, but I eagerly embraced this change. I thoroughly enjoyed the tomato sherry vinaigrette, which was a gorgeous blend of sweet, tangy, and acidic flavors, and really complemented the salmon. The meal as a whole was fresh, light, and perfectly balanced. I think I’m going to start eating salmon with salad from now on! (Well, maybe sometimes… :-) )

The pan is super hot so that the salmon skin will be super crispy
