salmon with olive anchovy tapenade

I love to eat salmon. Actually, I love the idea of eating salmon. All those good omega 3′s. Lately, I’ve been on a quest to create salmon toppings that disguise the fishy flavor. Here’s one that worked well.

Salmon with Anchovy Olive Tapenade

  • 4 (4 ounce) fillets wild salmon
  • ΒΌ cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon salted anchovies, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary, minced
  • 1 cup black kalamata olives, pitted
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Rinse salmon fillets, place in a 7 x 11 inch baking dish and drizzle with lemon juice
  2. In a food processor, place anchovies, rosemary, olives, garlic and olive oil; pulse until mixture turns into a coarse paste
  3. Spread paste over fillets and marinate 2- 6 hours; if short on time, skip marinating time
  4. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes
  5. Serve

Serves 4

This gluten-free salmon recipe is great, though particularly tasty in summer when the salmon can be grilled outdoors instead of baked in the oven.
