6 servings

  • 4 tablespoons butter softened
  • 12 ounces romaine lettuce base trimmed and quartered lengthwise
  • 8 scallions trimmed then white and green cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 1 pound shelled green peas

  • 6 pieces salmon (5½ ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Add 2 tablespoons butter to sauté pan set over medium heat and lay lettuce in pan.
  2. Add scallions, peas, bouquet garni, and water. Sprinkle with sugar, salt, and pepper. Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until peas and scallions are very tender. Note: shake pan periodically to prevent sticking. Remove garni and discard.
