A note about serious food allergies

Dried lentils cook quickly and do not need to be soaked, making them a perfect addition to a quick healthy meal. If you are familiar with lentils, you might be worried about them becoming soggy. The trick is to wait to add the salt or any acidic ingredients until the lentils are done cooking. Stir in the salt while the lentils are still warm, and they will absorb just enough to taste perfectly seasoned. In addition to the lentils, we also included a delicious corn salsa that wakes up your taste buds and complements the salmon perfectly.

Recipe Steps

  • Step 1 - Mix the Salsa
    1

    Mix the Salsa

    In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped shallot, garlic, red pepper, jalapeño, roasted corn and cilantro. Squeeze in the juice of the lime and combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Lentils
    2

    Cook the Lentils

    Place the lentils into a strainer and rinse. Transfer the rinsed lentils to a saucepan and pour in 2 cups of water. Bring the water to a rapid simmer over medium-high heat, reducing the heat to maintain a very gentle simmer. Cook uncovered for 20-30 minutes. Add water as needed to make sure the lentils are barely covered. Lentils are cooked as soon as they are tender and no longer crunchy. Strain and stir in salt to taste. Reserve.

  • Step 3 - Prep the Vegetables

    Roast the Corn
