About the Chef
Simply pan-sear the salmon and nestle it into a flavorful sauce made with cream of mushroom soup and prepared pesto. The vibrant grape tomatoes and spinach add a burst of freshness and contribute to making the recipe an excellent source of Vitamin A and C. Serve it over cooked brown rice, which provides additional fiber and whole grain. Recipe by the Campbell Soup Company
Ingredients
Directions
1
Season the fish as desired. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish and cook for 3 minutes (try not to turn it sooner- it may stick to the skillet). Turn the fish over. Cook for 2 minutes or until well browned. Remove the fish from the skillet
2
Add the tomatoes to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes or until they begin to burst, stirring occasionally. Stir the soup and water in the skillet and heat to a boil. Stir in the pesto and spinach and cook until the spinach is wilted
3
Return the fish to the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 1 minute or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve the fish and sauce over the rice
