Added to Recipes on Tue 12/06/2011


Makes 2 servings


2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

3 cups diced tomatoes (about 4 medium plum tomatoes)

3/4 cup low-sodium vegetable juice 

2 cups frozen lima beans (1 frozen packet)

1 (10 oz) skinless salmon filet, cut into 1 1/2 - 2 inch pieces

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup chopped fresh dill

1/2 lemon



In a medium-large saucepan, warm the olive oil and briefly cook the pepper flakes and garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Stir in the tomatoes and cook for about 3 minutes. Add the vegetable juice and lima beans and simmer, stirring occasionally for 7 to 8 minutes. Place the salmon pieces over the veggie mix, salt and pepper lightly, cover the pan and let it all steam on a low heat for 5 to 6 minutes – depending on how well done you like your salmon.


Take the pan off the heat, stir in the dill, drizzle with a little lemon and serve.
