This recipe comes to us from bestelling fitness and nutrition guru JJ Virgin, and appears in her Virgin Diet Cookbook.
As she says, "Robustly flavored Puttanesca sauce is a perfect counterpoint to flavorful wild salmon."
4 teaspoons organic extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives, halved lengthwise
2 teaspoons drained capers, chopped
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, divided
4 (6-ounce) wild salmon fillet portions, such as king or sockeye
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
