This recipe features spring-like seasonal greens, and making it for mom is a pretty sure way to win her heart.
If yours is like most, she will appreciate a home-cooked meal, and wouldn't want it too heavy.

We suggest serving the greens and salmon with Israeli (large-pearl) couscous or rice pilaf.

4 (6 oz each) wild Alaska salmon fillets
2 tablespoon organic extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 2 lemons
1 small Savoy cabbage, shredded

4 oz sugar snap peas (or snow peas or frozen peas)
1 oz butter
