Green – the color of money, Kermit the Frog, shamrocks, and this delicious, divine sauce, perfectly paired with a fabulous flakey fillet of salmon. Green is also the color of zucchini, cooked in this recipe with white wine and paprika, which adds a smoky tinge to the squash. Most of all, green is the color of envy, as anyone who sees you devouring such a beautiful dinner will feel.

Start the Potatoes
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and potatoes to hot pan. Cook undisturbed until lightly browned, 5 minutes.
Then stir occasionally until well-browned, 3-4 minutes.

Wipe pan clean and reserve.
While salmon and potatoes roast, cook zucchini.
