Olive Salsa Baked Salmon

Phew - who else needs a super fast, easy + tasty meal?


If olives are involved - I'm IN! I love the salty meaty little nuggets - along with ripe roma tomatoes, red onion, fresh herbs + salted salmon - it's a match!


It's seriously so quick to put together. I love how fast it cooked up in the oven (1 pan meal!!) + there is extra salad to pile on high. Add in some sauteed spinach + rice - it's a meal, filled with salt, flavor + delicious salmon!



Olive Salsa Baked Salmon


4 salmon steaks

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 pinch of salt

2 roma tomatoes, diced

1 tablespoon red onion, chopped finely (optional)

1 cup mixed pitted olives, roughly chopped

2 tablespoons oil, from the olives

1 scallion, chopped

1 small handful fresh parsley, chopped


Preheat your oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Arrange the salmon steaks, skin side down on the parchment paper on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with black pepper + salt.


When the oven is at temperature, bake for 8-12 minutes or until the salmon is cooked in the center to your likely. I prefer mine on the medium rare side so I pull mine out at 10 minutes.


While the salmon bakes, mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl.


Remove the salmon from the oven + top immediately with the olive salsa mix.


Serve along side of vegetables, rice or a salad.


Enjoy!
