  • 4 salmon steaks or fillets of any flat fish such as sea bass
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into tiny cubes
  • 1 celery root, peeled and cut into tiny cubes
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 fresh onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups tightly packed spinach leaves, washed, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 3/4 cup green lentils
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Preserved Lemon slices


  • #This is my personal interpretation of combining two ingredients I love to eat – fish and lentils. This dish is very easy to prepare for company or a crowd because foil packages can be prepared ahead and refrigerated until cooking time. Serve each foil packet on individual plates and let everyone cut into their own. A big basket of slices of fresh crusty bread on the table would be great. Pass Avocado Mayonnaise on the side to spread on bread. A dollop of this tasty mayonnaise tastes outstanding on fish steaks as well.# Preheat oven to 350 °F / 180 °C
  • Sweat the onions, carrot and celery cubes in oil in saucepan over medium low heat. Stir occasionally. Add the wine and cook stirring until it evaporates.
  • Then add the broth and bring to a simmer. Rinse and drain lentils. Add these to the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper. Cook covered until all the liquid is absorbed and the lentils are soft.
  • Next add the spinach and cook stirring until wilted. Then add the lemon zest and juice. Turn heat off and start assembling the foil packages.
  • Cut 4 rectangular pieces of foil big enough to hold vegetables and fish steak. Spoon 1/4 of vegetables onto a foil sheet.
  • Place a fish steak on the vegetables and top with preserved lemon slices. Season lightly. Bring the long ends of foil together and fold.
  • Squeeze short ends tightly like a candy wrap. Place foil packages on a baking tray and bake in the oven about 30 minutes or until fish steaks are done.
