Prepare Red Bell Pepper Coulis; set aside. Slice zucchini lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick strips, stopping at the inside part of the zucchini containing the seeds; discard middle portions. Cut strips lengthwise into long, thin "noodles"; set aside.
Combine lime juice and next 4 ingredients (lime juice through garlic) in a small bowl. Rub salmon with juice mixture. Dredge salmon in flour. Melt 2 teaspoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add salmon; sauté 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove salmon from skillet. Set aside; keep warm.
Melt 1 teaspoon butter in skillet. Add zucchini noodles; sauté 4 minutes or until wilted, tossing gently.
Spoon Red Bell Pepper Coulis onto 6 serving plates. Top with zucchini noodles and salmon. Garnish with chopped parsley and freshly ground pepper, if desired.
Not sure what recipe the other review was talking about. The blender pureed the coulis perfectly I didn't even strain it, and a light coat of flour sauteed in butter made the salmon "retaurant" quality. This was very easy for the how impressive it is.
Having a julianne begtablke peerler was a key to the easy of this recipe. I had the whole meal on the table in about 30mins.
After the rave reviews, I was really disappointed with this recipe. The zucchini "noodles" are a cool idea I would use again. The salmon recipe looked wonderful, but rolling salmon in flour and then pan searing is just not a good idea. It came out dry and fluor-y and didn't taste like salmon. I would much rather use similar ingredients (garlic, shallots, lemon juice, etc.) to marinate and then bake or grill. The coulis was OK, but it was a lot of work, and I had a hard time making it smooth. Even after straining twice, it felt too chunky. And I would definitely recommend adding the vinegar a little at a time--I added the 2 T all at once, and the balsamic overpowered the other, more delicate flavors. Overall, a good idea for a complete meal combination, but needs a lot of tweaking to be a winner in my book.
