Sauteed Salmon with Zucchini Noodles


Quantity Ingredients
4 medium zucchini
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp minced shallots
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cracked pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
6 salmon fillets
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp butter, divided
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)
Freshly ground pepper (optional)


Slice zucchini lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick strips, stopping at the inside part of the zucchini containing the seeds; discard middle portions. Cut strips lengthwise into long, thin "noodles"; set aside.

Combine lime juice and next 4 ingredients (lime juice through garlic) in a small bowl. Rub salmon with juice mixture. Dredge salmon in flour. Melt 2 teaspoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add salmon; sauté 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove salmon from skillet. Set aside; keep warm.

Melt 1 teaspoon butter in skillet. Add zucchini noodles; sauté 4 minutes or until wilted, tossing gently.

Top with zucchini noodles and salmon. Garnish with chopped parsley and freshly ground pepper, if desired.
