Weekday dinner: salmon and bell pepper

I'd rather not freeze fish or chicken if possible, and with Whole Foods so close, it's easy enough to procure fresh fish or chicken.  Also, living alone means I get the amusement of picking out single fillets or chicken breasts.  Whole Foods may be ridiculously overpriced or unhelpful for many items, but it's hard to argue with the quality of their meat and seafood counter.

Anyway, my most recent salmon purchase was simply sauteed and then served on a bed of sliced red bell pepper, which had been cooked in a reduction of balsamic vinegar (no, I have not been feeling creative) with shallots browned in a little butter.  Steamed broccoli and spaghetti on the side.
