Go to any French bistro, and you’ll likely find a dish of lentils and salmon. It’s a classic for good reason: Lean, mellow lentils complement the richness of the fish. This version includes a Moroccan-inspired spice rub on the salmon. As you eat, flake the salmon into the lentils to better distribute those aromatic spices throughout the dish.

Salmon could have used more spice rub. Only place I found French lentils was Target; maybe they weren't top quality, because they soaked up the water very fast and never seemed quite done. Probably should have covered them while simmering, but followed the recipe exactly since I'd never prepared the French variety before. Apricots lent a nice flavor. All in all, though, a nice quick supper recipe with an attractive presentation.
