Salmon with Escarole and Lemon | Everyday Food with Sarah Carey

This week’s recipes are going to be all about cooking with less fat. Now, you know I love using oil as much (if not more!) than anyone else, but the right cooking techniques have convinced me that low-fat foods can be delicious, too. We’re starting the week off with one of the most classic low-fat cooking techniques of all time — steaming. I know what you’re thinking: “Steaming — how boring!” But trust me, your taste buds will not doze off during dinner with this dish.

Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
The key is building layers of flavor: Start by sauteing sliced red onion and garlic, then adding escarole, a pleasantly bitter green that adds a lot to this recipe. Top that with salmon, lemon slices, salt, and pepper, and let it steam with a bit of water until the salmon is cooked through (that only takes about 12 minutes). Brighten it all up with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice at the last minute. Watch the video and I’ll show you how to give steaming a better reputation.
