Sheet Pan Salmon Romesco With Green Beans and Crushed Potatoes
Jamie Vespa, R.D.

During a flare, steer clear of high-fiber veggies, which can exacerbate an already-irritated colon. Better options include cooked green beans and potatoes, which are naturally low in FODMAPs, compounds that cause pain and bloating (the last thing you need when you have ulcerative colitis).

Directions

Step 1Preheat oven to 425°F.

Step 2Place potatoes in a medium saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer 12 minutes or until almost tender. Drain

Step 3Place salmon fillets on one side of a rimmed baking sheet coated with parchment paper. Brush with 1 Tbsp. of the oil, and sprinkle on ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. black pepper. Place potatoes next to salmon and use the flat side of a measuring cup to gently crush potatoes. Brush potatoes evenly with 1 Tbsp. oil, and sprinkle on ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. black pepper. Place pan in the oven and bake for 8 minutes.

Step 4Remove pan from oven and add haricots verts to open space on baking sheet. Toss with 2 tsp. oil and ¼ tsp. salt. Place back in oven for 8 more minutes. Turn on broiler to high; broil until salmon is browned and potatoes are crisp, about 2 minutes.

Step 5Combine red peppers, walnuts, lemon juice, paprika, and remaining ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. black pepper in a food processor or blender; blend until smooth. Spoon Romesco over salmon fillets and potatoes. Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired.
