A note about serious food allergies

This meal looks like it's all about the health at first: fresh green beans and flaky salmon aren't exactly a cheeseburger and fries. (But, oh, if a cheeseburger and fries was as healthy as green beans and salmon!) But first glances don't always tell the whole story: the second word of the title is where the fun begins. Salty rich pecans and our friend butter combine to top the salmon with some lovely decadence. Combining healthy and fun never tasted so good! Tip: Line 'em up! The best way to remove the ends of green beans is to line them up evenly, then remove them with one cut.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using protein, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • If using ahi tuna, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as salmon in Step 5, cooking until tuna reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-5 minutes per side. Tuna is often enjoyed medium-rare (pink in the middle). For medium-rare, cook 1-2 minutes per side. Consuming raw or undercooked tuna may increase your risk for food-borne illness.

  • If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as salmon in Step 5, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using ribeye, follow same instructions as salmon in Step 5, cooking until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Halve to serve.

  • If using NY strip steak, follow same instructions as salmon in Step 5, cooking until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 9-11 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Halve to serve.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve and peel onion. Slice one half into thin strips. (Remaining half is yours to use as you please!) Trim ends off green beans. Coarsely chop pecans. Combine ⅓ cup water and cornstarch in a mixing bowl. Set aside. Pat salmon fillets dry, and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Caramelize the Onion

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and onion to hot pan. Stir often until browned, 8-10 minutes. If pan becomes dry, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, as necessary. While onion cooks, make pecan butter.

  3. 3

    Make the Pecan Butter

    In a mixing bowl, combine softened butter and pecans. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Cook the Green Beans

    Add green beans, half the Italian seasoning (remaining half is yours to use as you please!), garlic salt, a pinch of salt, and 2 tsp. olive oil to pan with onion. Stir occasionally, 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium. Add cornstarch-water mixture, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Cover, and cook undisturbed until tender and liquid coats green beans, 6-8 minutes. If green beans need more time, add 1 Tbsp. water and keep cooking, 1-3 minutes. Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Cook Salmon and Finish Dish

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add salmon, skin side up, to hot pan and cook until golden brown and salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping salmon with pecan butter. Bon appétit!
