Heart Healthy Honey Salmon with Turnips Recipe
In a small skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat until hot. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 3 minutes, or until onion is softened. Add the turnips and continue to cook, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes, or until turnips are tender. Season turnips with pepper. Set aside.
Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Lightly coat a medium skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add the salmon, skin side down, and sear it for about 3 minutes, or until crisp. With a spatula, flip the salmon. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, honey, lime juice and herbs. Baste the fish until it is medium rare, about 3 minutes. Serve topped with honey sauce and vegetables.
