As the days get colder, all I want is comfort food. Bring on the soups, sumptuous stews, or sauce-covered fish/pasta, I’m craving comfort. Mushroom Smothered Salmon tastes like a true comfort meal. With large slices of mushrooms and a thick, creamy sauce, the mushroom gravy perfectly compliments salmon’s bold, buttery flavour.
The combination of mushrooms, onions, milk, flour, lemon juice, and vegetable broth create a velvety mushroom sauce without the use of any cream or butter. Talk about a healthy meal! The mushroom sauce is so rich tasting, your taste buds won’t miss anything.
Mushroom Smothered Salmon may sound fancy, but it’s really simple to make. Simply sauté mushrooms and onions and slowly add the remaining mushroom sauce ingredients. When the sauce thickens, smother it over the salmon, and bake. Easy peasy! Serve it over a bed of brown rice and you have one delicious dinner. You have to love a meal that’s healthy, takes less than 25 minutes to make, and truly tastes amazing.
