Nutritious Salmon and Squash Delicata — A Meal Worth Watching

Andrea in her kitchen

Watch us cook up a nutritious salmon meal, perhaps one that’s destined to replace turkey this Thanksgiving.

WHEN ANDREA calls and suggests she make dinner, a smile always spreads across my face cause I know I’m in for a treat.

“Let’s test this new recipe”, she exclaimed.  “It would be good to make for a dinner party… perhaps an alternative to a turkey meal this Thanksgiving.”

Two hours later, I was in her kitchen where we made a nutritious salmon dish with a fantastic sauce, and butternut squash raviolis.

Alaskan Salmon is rich in the healthy omega-3 fatty acids (learn more about fats here) and protein.  Butternut Squash is a good source of Vitamin E, B6, calcium and magnesium.

Watch us cook up this wonderful meal in this video:

Ravioli Recipe:

This in a book called Williams Sonoma, Cooking for Friends, page 56, Delicata Squash Raviolis. The basics are:

  • ¼ cup ricotta cheese
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 cups butternut squash, cubed
  • 8 cloves of garlic
  • 4 sprigs of thyme
  • 3 sprigs of rosemary
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 to 2 tbls. olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • Package of wanton wraps
  • 2 eggs, scrambled

Bake the squash, garlic and herbs.

Boil water.

Remove the herbs and squash the squash and garlic together.

Set out the wantons and brush them with the scrambled eggs.

Put about a level tablespoon of squash on each wanton and fold over into a triangle.

Place them in the boiling water until they start to float.

Saute the spinach in oil and add toasted walnuts for about two minutes.

Put the ravioli in the serving dish and place the spinach mixture over it.

Along the way, presumably, you’ve been cooking the salmon and sauce per this recipe, so add the salmon to the dish and feast away!
