“This is good, mom,” the girls said! Actually they ended up asking to “just eat Rhubarb” at the end of the meal because it was so good, but we opted to save it for toast instead.
You will need:
1-2 lb rhubarb, cut into 1/4 inch pieces (about 5 cups)
1/2 cup sugar
1 lemon, juice of, to taste
8(6 ounce) salmon fillets, about 1 inch thick,
salt & freshly ground black pepper
1 Preheat oven to 500 degrees
2 In a small saucepan, combine rhubarb, and sugar.
3 Cover and cook over low heat until rhubarb is falling apart, about 10 minutes, adding water if necessary.
4 Stir in the lemon juice. The sauce should be the consistency of applesauce.
5 Arrange salmon filets, skin side down, parchment paper on a baking pan.
6 Season to taste with salt and pepper.
7 Bake until flakes 10-15 minutes.
8 Place fillets on rhubarb.
9 Spoon rhubarb onto center of warmed plates.
