Author's Notes

I used Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, and Apricots in this recipe - reminiscent of tsimmes an Ashkenazi Jewish sweet root vegetable mash. However, feel free to sub in vegetables of your choice! Cooking times may vary.

If you have some picky guests at your table, you can also sub in chicken for the salmon, however I recommend marinating in the lemon-mustard mixture for at least 30 minutes before coating.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat Oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
step 2
Peel and chop Sweet Potatoes (3) into 1-inch thick rounds.c Mince the Garlic (3 cloves).
step 3
Roughly chop Shelled Pistachios (1 cup).
step 4
In a food processor processes Shelled Pistachios (1 cup) until a coarse, powdery mixture forms. Mix powder with roughly chopped pistachios. Place in a wide bowl or plate and set aside.
step 5
In a mixing bowl combine Honey (1/3 cup) and juice from Lemons (4). Divide evenly between two large bowls.
step 6
In one bowl, place Dijon Mustard (1/4 cup) and garlic and mix to combine.
step 7
In the other bowl place the Sweet Potatoes, Baby Carrots (10), and Dried Apricot (1/2 cup) and toss to coat. Add Brown Sugar (1 1/2 Tbsp) and toss again.
step 8
Coat the Salmon Fillets (4) in the mixture and then press it into the pistachios to coat it as you would breadcrumbs.

step 10
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until fish is opaque.
step 11
Remove the fish from the tray and continue cooking the vegetables until tender about 10-15 more minutes. (Cover salmon with foil to keep it warm).
step 12
Thinly slice Green Apples (3).
step 13
Toss in Honey (1 1/2 Tbsp) and Salt (to taste) and set aside.
step 14
Prepare your dressing in a sealable container, combine the Pomegranate Juice (1/2 cup), Honey (2 1/2 Tbsp), Dijon Mustard (1 Tbsp), Apple Cider Vinegar (1/4 cup), and Olive Oil (1/3 cup). Shake to combine.
step 15
Before serving toss apples with Salad Greens (to taste), dress with 1/2 of dressing (or to taste), and garnish with Feta Cheese (to taste). If you want, add some Pomegranate Seeds (to taste) for color.
