A note about serious food allergies

Crackers and salmon? Indeed! What can be better than the textural contrast between the crunchy, butter-y rich and sweet crackers and the flaky, tender fish? You don't have to answer, just think about the slightly grassy, slightly citrus-y notes of dill in lemon-y cream sauce drizzled on top. I think now we're thinking the same thing: which one of us can order this delightful meal that fastest.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem and mince dill.
    Zest and halve lemon. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half. Cut potatoes into large evenly sized chunks. Finely crush butter crackers. Pat salmon dry and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Prepared the Mashed Potatoes

    Bring a medium pot with potato chunks and 2 tsp. salt covered by water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes. Reserve ½ cup of potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot. Add half the cream cheese (reserve remaining for sauce), garlic salt, sour cream, half the potato cooking water, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mash potato mixture until creamy. Add remaining potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside. While potatoes boil, start the green beans.

  3. 3

    Start the Green Beans

    Place green beans on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Roast in hot oven until green beans are slightly tender, 7-9 minutes. Green beans will finish cooking in a later step. While green beans roast, start the salmon.

  4. 4

    Coat and Cook the Salmon

    Drizzle flesh side of salmon with 1 tsp. olive oil. Place crushed butter crackers on a plate. Place salmon, flesh side down, on crushed butter crackers and gently press to adhere. Push green beans to one side of baking sheet and top with Parmesan. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Place salmon, butter-cracked crust side up, on empty half of baking sheet. Roast in hot oven until green beans are tender, butter cracker crust is golden-brown, and salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 10-12 minutes.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    In a small non-stick pan, combine remaining cream cheese, 2 Tbsp. water, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and stir until creamy and slightly thickened, 1 minute. Remove from burner and add dill, 1 tsp. lemon juice, and lemon zest. Plate dish as pictured on card, topping salmon with sauce and squeezing lemon wedges over dish (to taste). Bon appétit!
