Recipe submitted by DaVita renal dietitian Trish from California.

Portions: 4     Serving size: 3 ounces salmon + 1/2 cup squash

  1. Chop shallot and dill weed. Cut squash into thin sticks 1/4″ x 2-1/2″.
  2. In a salad dressing bottle, combine shallot, dill weed, vinegar, 2 tablespoons olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Set aside.
  3. Rub salmon fillet with oil and season with pepper. Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add salmon fillet, skin side down, and cook for 3-5 minutes; turn and cook 3-5 minutes or until cooked through and opaque.
