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

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
