‘North African Spiced Salmon over French Lentils’

Recipe Courtesy of Fine Cooking Magazine

Oh what a glorious dish!  Flaky salmon filets coated in a mixture of Moroccan spices that are served over a hearty serving of French lentils.  Salmon and lentils is a classic French pairing, but what I loved about this version are the North African touches. The spice mix (which would also be great on pork, a roast chicken, even a skirt steak) included cumin, turmeric, allspice, paprika, cayenne pepper, ground cinnamon, and ground ginger.  (Can’t you just smell the spice mix already? ) And the lentils were flavored with sweet dried apricots, onions, lemon zest and briny capers.   Such a wonderful updated version of a classic French flavor combination!
