Salmon Puttanesca

Prep time 11 mins
Cook time 27 mins
Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1/3 cup sauce)
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.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 6 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1 large onion, diced (about 1 3/4 cups)
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup pitted kalamata olives, chopped
  • 1/4 cup drained capers
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
