Pan Seared Salmon with Succotash

I used to have a hard time as a child eating my veggies but once my grandmother introduced this tasty dish into my life that changed.


This recipe combines succotash, which is a simple sauteed mixture of corn, okra, lima beans, and crushed tomatoes, along with grilled salmon fillets.

For the succotash, you can also add red and green peppers which are also traditional ingredients. The salmon is prepared in a cast iron pan and is seasoned simply with salt, pepper, and creole seasoning. This creole two-man team of flavor will leave you satisfied without the guilt!

When you are looking for a great dinner idea but want to keep an eye out for the carbs, this Pan-seared Salmon & Succotash combo is excellent.



  • 1 1/2 lb. Organic Atlantic Salmon Filet
  • 8 oz. Sweet Corn
  • 16 oz. Okra Cut
  • 14 oz. Diced Tomatoes
  • 15 oz. Lima Beans
  • 1 tbsp. Minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp. Creole Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 3 1/2 tsp. Olive Oil
  • 4 tbsp. Butter
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp. Ground All Spice
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 1 tsp. Ground Thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. Red Cayenne Pepper


For the Succotash:

  1. Pre-heat cooking pan to medium heat. Add 2 tbsp of butter and minced garlic to heated pan and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add cut okra and corn into pan and cook uncovered for 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Add lima beans, drained diced tomatoes, garlic powder, paprika, ground all spice, ground thyme, and red pepper. Stir then cook covered for 15 minutes. Once the beans are soft, set temperature to low simmer.

For the Salmon:

  1. Pre-heat cooking pan to medium heat and add 3 tbsp of olive oil and 2 tbsp of butter.
  2. Season your salmon with 1/2 tsp of creole seasoning, sea salt and black pepper by rubbing ingredients into fish. Pour 1/2 tsp of olive oil over the fish and rub oil evenly.
  3. Cut your salmon filet into desired serving sizes. Place the salmon skin up (for that crispy skin) into the hot cooking oil for 4 minutes and 2 minutes on the skin side.
  4. Serve hot with succotash.


Cooking the succotash for 15 minutes allows the okra the cook down therefore removing the slime. It also allows the lima beans to cook perfectly.

  1. seems like you really need some extra liquid to cook the limas? I would think that one can of drained tomatoes would not be sufficient liquid for them.

    • The liquid that develops from the other ingredients seems to provide the right amount of liquid for my taste. If you prefer more, just skip draining your tomatoes. Should work out just fine.
