Salmon Provencal Vegetables Vinaigrette
Recipe courtesy of the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute.
Prep time 20 minutes; Cook time 15 minutes
Serves 4

Ingredients

Garnish

  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped Italian parsley
  • Lemon wedges

Provençal Vegetables Vinaigrette

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 5 Tablespoons organic extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried Herbes de Provence or 1 teaspoon each dried basil leaves and dried thyme leaves
  • 1 cup frozen tiny green beans (haricots verts), defrosted
  • 6 red new potatoes, cooked and diced
  • 1/2 cup diced roasted red peppers
  • 1/2 small red onion, slivered lengthwise, rinsed in cold water and drained thoroughly
  • 1/4 cup pitted imported olives, such as Kalamata
  • 1 Tablespoon drained capers
Directions

  1. Before cooking the salmon, mix all Provençal Vegetables Vinaigrette ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Pat salmon dry with paper towel. Heat a large heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of salmon with a little olive oil. Place salmon, skin side up, in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.
  3. Turn salmon over and season with salt and pepper. Move the pan off the burner, add wine to pan, and immediately return pan to burner. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
  4. Remove fish to a platter; do not wash the pan. In the pan that the fish was cooked in, add the Provençal Vegetables Vinaigrette, and heat over high heat until just warmed, about 1 to 2 minutes. Pour over fish on platter, sprinkle with parsley and garnish with lemon wedges, if desired. Serve immediately.
