    From the Test Kitchen

    This simple, vibrant dish pairs crispy-skin salmon with fluffy white rice tossed with sautéed tomatoes and spinach and our own Italian-style salsa verde (which includes parsley, olive oil, garlic, and more). It’s all finished with some more of the zesty, verdant sauce spooned on top of the fish just before serving.

    Salsa Verde Salmon with Spinach & Tomato Rice
    Title
    • 4 Flank Steaks
    • ⅓ cup Salsa Verde
    • 1 cup Long Grain White Rice
    • 5 oz Baby Spinach
    • ½ lb Grape Tomatoes
    • 1 Tbsp Weeknight Hero Spice Blend (Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Smoked Paprika & Whole Dried Parsley)
    • ¼ tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
    • 2 Tbsps Crème Fraîche
    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the tomatoes; place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat.

    Cook the steaks
    3 Cook the steaks

    Pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook 2 to 4 minutes per side for medium- rare (125°F), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board; let rest at least 5 minutes.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for steak. Cook the steaks an additional 2 to 3 minutes to achieve this.

    Cook the vegetables
    4 Cook the vegetables

    In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned tomatoes and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the spinach. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly wilted. Turn off the heat.

    5 Finish the rice & serve your dish

    Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steaks; slice crosswise against the grain. To the pot of cooked rice, add the crème fraîche, cooked vegetables, half the salsa verde, and a drizzle of olive oil; stir to thoroughly combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished rice topped with the sliced steaks and remaining salsa verde. Enjoy!
