Ingredients

4 – 6 oz. salmon filets
Sea salt & black pepper
3 heirloom tomatoes, quartered and seeded
1 red bell pepper cut in half & core, seeds & ribs removed
½ red onion, sliced into ¼ inch thick slices
4 oz. good quality olive oil, divided
1 Tablespoon RC Chopped Garlic in Oil
4 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon RC Healthy Gluten-Free Seafood Base not diluted
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
1 Tablespoon capers, chopped
2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano
8 pitted kalamata olives, chopped
4-6 pitted green Sicilian olives, chopped

Steps

  1. Season salmon filets with sea salt & freshly ground black pepper

    Note: (Recommend not turning the salmon filets onto the skin side until time to plate. This will eliminate the possibility of the skin sticking to the pan.)
  3. While the salmon is cooking, combine 2 oz. olive oil, tomatoes, red bell pepper and red onion slices with 1 Tbsp. RC Chopped Garlic in Oil
  4. On a very hot grill sear all until slightly charred and softened
  5. Immediately place red pepper in brown paper bag and cut tomato & onion into small dice
  6. Peel skin from grilled red pepper and cut into ½ inch thick julienne strips and add to tomato and onion mixture
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, RC Healthy Foundations Gluten-Free Seafood Base and anchovy paste
  8. Slowly drizzle in remaining 2 oz. of olive oil and whisk until vinaigrette is blended
  9. Pour vinaigrette over grilled vegetables and add chopped capers, oregano & olives, blend then taste and season with sea salt & black pepper

Nearly two-thirds (65%) of millennials, compared to 44% overall, say they’re more likely to purchase and willing to pay at least slightly more for menu items with organic claims, according to Technomic’s 2016 Healthy...

We make people call and directly talk to their boss or supervisor if they are reporting an absence for a shift. While it is more cumbersome, it is a conscious decision. We have adapted and implemented electronic methods to obtain efficiencies in just about every other functional area, except for electronic absence reporting systems. The direct supervisor can put more pressure on an employee to show up—especially those with some form of the “Super Bowl plague”—than any electronic system can.
