Filling, but not fattening. This recipe will help you keep your New Year’s resolutions!

Serves 4


1 small onion, thinly sliced

sea salt and black pepper

2 bunches broccoli rabe, halved lengthwise if thick

2 tablespoons capers

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 6-ounce pieces wild skinless salmon fillet

2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill

Fresh lemon juice for serving


Combine the onion, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ cup water in a small bowl. Let sit until softened slightly, 12 to 15 minutes; drain.

Meanwhile, steam the broccoli rabe in ½ inch of water until tender, 4 to 6 minutes; drain. Toss with the capers, onion, 1 tablespoon of the oil, and ¼ teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl.

Season the salmon with the dill, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the salmon and cook until opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Serve the salmon and broccoli rabe with a sprinkle of fresh lemon juice.
