Eat This Now: Crispy-Skin Salmon With Herb Dressing

Organic food guru Maria Rodale has a new cookbook, called Scratch. It focuses on simple preparations for maximum flavor and nutrition. Here, she shares a recipe from the book. (Just the thought of crispy-skin salmon with herb dressing makes us hungry for dinner.)

“If I ask my kids what they want for dinner, given anything, they almost always ask for salmon. I love it when they do because it’s so healthy, easy, and delicious. The key is to start with good salmon. I prefer to purchase wild-caught king salmon, which is a bit pricey but a rare and healthy treat, so I think it’s worth it. The omega-3s alone are a powerful enough reason to devour it.” — Maria Rodale


Crispy-Skin Salmon With Herb Dressing

Serves four

For the fish
1½ lbs. skin-on salmon fillet
Sea salt
Extra virgin olive oil, for cooking

For the herb dressing
¼ c. extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill leaves
1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
Sea salt

1. Cut the salmon fillet into four equal pieces and sprinkle with some salt.

2. In a large cast-iron skillet, heat a little oil over high heat. Add the salmon, skin-side down, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the skin is crispy. Cover with a lid and cook for 1 minute more (or turn the fish and cook without the lid), or until cooked to your liking.

3. Meanwhile, to make the herb dressing: In a small bowl, stir together the oil, parsley, dill, garlic, and salt to taste.

4. To serve, drizzle the salmon with the herb dressing.

Scratch is available online at amazon.com.
