This easy salmon dish topped with a bold puttanesca salsa will really showcase the best that your kitchen has to offer. 

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
  2. Heat a nonstick pan to a very high heat and sear salmon fillets bone side only until well crusted and finish in oven until internal temperature reaches 145°F and reserve
    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

school bus

We retrofitted a school bus to serve a dual role. During the school year, it travels school to school where students use it as a learning lab; and during the summer and long school holidays, the bus transports meals to specific sites to feed children.

welcome hand

We review a welcome packet during the interview process that includes absence policies, salary and pay dates, job description and uniform policies. We show the uniform, hairnets and shoes to potential hires. The goal is to present people with as accurate a picture as possible of what it would be like to be in a school foodservice operation before job opportunities are discussed. I want to believe that has helped the retention process.

Because I’m writing this letter in the middle of August, it’s a bit tough to imagine the fall season—crunchy leaves, cooler air and the impending sense of dread over whether this will finally be the winter when I freeze to the sidewalk.

Meanwhile, at Greenville County Schools in South Carolina, K-12 diners are getting amped up about a plethora of DIY options, including a build-your-own chicken and waffles bar, says Director of Food and Nutrition Services Joe Urban.
