The best springtime flavors of the Pacific Northwest in one tasty dish – salmon, morel mushrooms & asparagus, all brought together on a bed of lemony lentils.
I am lucky enough to call the Pacific Northwest of the US home. Not only do we have a nearly unlimited variety of foods available from around the world, but we have a HUGE abundance of locally raised, grown, and harvested products – all kinds of fishes, wild game, a wide variety grains and legumes (Did you know Washington state even hosts the National Lentil Festival? Who knew!), veggies of all sorts (from asparagus to zucchini, and every letter in between), and some of the best tree fruits in the world (Wenatchee, Washington is considered the apple capital of the world). And that is just the short list!
This recipe features some of the best of these Northwest foods – salmon, morel mushrooms, lentils, and asparagus.
