roasted red pepper tomato sauce with spinach and salmon

This high protein salmon dish with Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup from Pacific Foods was a big hit with my husband, and children as well.

The sweet, smoky taste of the sauce (which simply uses the above soup) along with healthy spinach and salted salmon, results in a sophisticated entree that is not too challenging to make –a lovely dish that will wow your guests.

Thanks for all of your votes in the first round of Pacific Foods Everyday Chef Challenge!  Because of you, I won that round, and healthy, high protein, gluten free has even more exposure in the mainstream.  I especially want to thank Chris James of Celiac Handbook for tirelessly spreading the word about the contest on Twitter and Facebook.

The dish below is my entry for round 2 of the Pacific Foods Everyday Chef Challenge.  Please head on over if you have a minute and vote for your favorite recipe.  Same rules apply as last time, you can vote every 24 hours until the contest is over one week from today, on Wednesday, October 6th.
