Salmon with Cannellini Beans and Tomatoes

Salmon is something I absolutely love eating. I love it so much that I usually go for this preparation, but the other night I wanted to try something new. Steaming salmon is going to be my new go-to because it stayed so so moist throughout the cooking process and was such a game changer!

Bryan picked up a gorgeous, wild-caught filet of salmon for me at the SW Fish Market and I let my imagination go. Cannellini beans are a mainstay in my pantry and they should be in yours too (you can make this and this with them), so I threw in a can of those. I also had my beloved cherry tomatoes on hand so I halved them long ways and brought them to the party too!salmon tomatoes cannellini beans keys to the cucina 1 salmon tomatoes cannellini beans keys to the cucina 4

Per usual, I am late to the party with what songs are “hot” right now. So, apologies for the delayed reaction but this song is so catchy and I listened to it multiple times on my beach weekend so I just had to post it today. Enjoy!
