Healthy Recipe of the Month

Thai-Style Salmon

A fresh, uncooked salad-style vegetable sauce tops the hot baked salmon. The contrast in temperatures and textures is extremely satisfying. There is also a wonderful contrast between the richness of the salmon and the herbal, citrusy flavors of the vegetable mixture. Serving suggestion: For a one-dish meal, toss the vegetables with a bowl of whole-wheat linguine and serve the pasta topped with the salmon.



  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a medium bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons of the lime juice, the soy sauce, and sugar. Add the carrots and bell pepper, and toss to combine. Refrigerate until serving time.
  2. Place the salmon fillets, skin-side down, on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the fish with the remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice, the coriander, and the salt. Roast for about 10 minutes, or until the fish just flakes when tested with a fork. Slip a spatula between the flesh and the skin and lift, leaving the skin behind.
  3. Stir the cilantro and mint into the carrot-pepper mixture and spoon over the hot salmon.
