Alaska Salmon with Gnocchi and Roasted Red Pepper

Alaska Salmon with Gnocchi and Roasted Red Pepper  

Serves 4

1/2 cup roasted red bell pepper
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1 tablespoon arrowroot* or kuzu root* powder (cornstarch if necessary)
1/4 to 1/2 whole jalapeño pepper, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 cup chicken broth
1 pound potato gnocchi (dumplings) or 4 cups cooked whole-wheat orzo
4 skinless-boneless Alaska Salmon fillets (6 oz each), thawed
1 Tablespoon organic extra virgin olive or macadamia nut oil
1 teaspoon Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade seasoning mix or lemon-pepper seasoning

*sold in natural food and Asian markets

  • In blender, puree red peppers, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, arrowroot* or kuzu root, jalapeño, and garlic. Blend in cilantro and chicken broth. In a small saucepan, cook and stir pepper sauce over high heat until boiling. Reduce heat; cover and keep warm.

  • Cook gnocchi according to package directions; keep warm.

  • Rinse Alaska Salmon under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of salmon with oil. Place salmon in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.

  • Turn salmon over and sprinkle with seasoning. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes, just until fish is opaque throughout.

  • To serve, add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese to gnocchi. Portion 1 cup gnocchi onto each serving plate; drizzle with sauce. Top with salmon and drizzle with remaining sauce.
