Salmon on Moroccan Melted Tomatoes
The mixture of spices adds an exotic touch to this piquant dish, which pairs nicely with delicate couscous.
Yield: Makes 4 servings
- 1 pound plum tomatoes, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces
- 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1 teaspoon orange zest
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup chopped green salad olives*
- 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
- Hot cooked couscous
- Combine tomato, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and next 7 ingredients in a large bowl; set aside.
- Sprinkle salmon with pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add salmon; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until golden on both sides but not cooked through, turning once. Transfer fish to a plate.
- Add onion to skillet; cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in tomato mixture; cook for 4 minutes or until liquid begins to thicken, stirring constantly. Gently place salmon on top of tomato mixture. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Sprinkle with mint. Serve with hot cooked couscous.
- *The green pitted salad olives (not to be confused with pimiento-stuffed Spanish olives) have a similar flavor to--and may be substituted with--ripe black olives.
