Buttery salmon replaces eggs in this version of the tomatoey North African dish shakshuka. It’s the ultimate one-pan meal. Serve with crusty bread or flatbread to soak up the deeply flavoured sauce. And this is one of the rare seafood dishes that can be served as leftovers. The flavour of the sauce becomes even more complex, and it works to keep the salmon moist. Simply reheat in a skillet over medium-low heat.
In large, deep-sided skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and salt; cook until onion is very soft, about 8 minutes. Add red bell pepper and garlic to pan; cook for 3 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, thyme, fennel seeds, coriander, and red chili flakes; heat for 1 minute. Place red wine in pan, bring to a simmer, and heat until liquid has reduced by about half.
To large bowl, transfer contents of canned tomatoes and squeeze tomatoes through your fingers to create a chunky pureu0301e. Add tomatoes and lemon zest to pan and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in red wine vinegar and olives.
Season salmon with black pepper. Nestle fish pieces in tomato mixture, cover and simmer gently until salmon is cooked through in centre, flipping once, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle on parsley and fennel fronds, if using.

Cauliflower has been having a moment lately, and this salad proves exactly why. Tender caramelized cauliflower is crowned in a glorious sweet and savoury crumble that will ensure it a place on your table all month long. Of all tree nuts, pecans have the highest concentration of flavonoids, which offer beneficial anti-inflammatory effects, and they also protect your cells from oxidative damage. Crumble perfection This crumble topping is too good not to use it on other preparations. Sprinkle over a carrot ribbon salad to add some extra pizzazz, use as a glorious garnish on a soup or stew, or consider generously spooning over your next vegetable “steak” to add some delicious textural variation.
This gloriously comforting dish gets its creamy lusciousness from a can of white beans. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have on hand instead of broccoli. Pass the pasta Instead of regular pasta, consider serving this sauce over zucchini noodles, carrot noodles, or cooked spaghetti squash.
This nut-free take on classic queso dip is everything you want and more.
