Sorrel is a tart, slightly sour spring herb. You can substitute watercress or arugula, if you’d like. The bread helps thicken the sorrel sauce for a consistency that is similar to pesto.

Sauce:

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 cup chopped sorrel
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 (1-ounce) slice white bread

Fish:

  • 8 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray

Method

  1. To prepare sauce, combine first 10 ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth.
  2. Preheat broiler.
  3. To prepare fish, sprinkle fish with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve fish with sorrel sauce.
