Cookbook Collection | Thursday Trials - Roasted Arctic Char & Asparagus with Pistachio Gremolata

Look at this beauty! I have mentioned a few times that my husband hates salmon... well, luckily for me, he was at a golf outing tonight! I love salmon but I don't get to cook it much. My mother in law and sister in law also love salmon, so they got the invite to join me tonight. Before I share details, I'd like you to know that we all gave it a 10 out of 10. I made very few changes and it came out really great, and how can I not mention how stunningly gorgeous this dinner is!

So for starters, I replaced arctic char with (wild) king salmon. King salmon was readily available at my fish market, but arctic char is just as delicious. Another tweak was replacing pistachios with toffee cashews. Have you ever tried toffee cashews? If you are saying no, PLEASE go find them!! They were the biggest hit at a recent wine & cheese party, and would make a great little app (or dessert) to bring as a dinner guest. They disappear within minutes!

I also couldn't find cherry tomatoes at the market, so organic grape tomatoes had to do. Overall, the changes were minimal, and the dish was still so quick and easy (10 min prep, 20 min to bake). I'm really excited to have a "go-to" salmon dish (when my husband isn't around at least)! We highly recommend this one!!
