Monday Supper: Seared Salmon with Red Pepper Sauce

Seared Salmon with Red Pepper Sauce

What do you have cookin’ for Monday supper? The Johnny Prep household loves a succulent fish plate every so often, and this recipe for Seared Salmon with Red Pepper Sauce is one of our favorites. The key to the success of this dish is not just the deliciously minimal ingredients and subtle flavors, but in how you cook the fish, searing until you have a nice, crispy brown color over the surface. The addition of red pepper purée and chicken broth or stock is what gives it that savory, moist flavor.
