Salmon Puttanesca

The bold tomato and olive sauce is cooked just long enough to bring out the ingredients' natural flavors. It's traditionally served over pasta, but it goes with salmon equally well. Omit the red pepper for a less spicy sauce.


6 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1/3 cup sauce)
