A note about salmon and Artic char….

We go through phases where we eat fish regularly and we are in one of those phases!

Salmon is one of our go to fishes to make because we all enjoy it, it’s a mild tasting fish — not fishy tasting or smelling, and the texture is fabulous with a nice gently flake to it.

But truth be told, I am not a fish expert at all! I know what we like and I have a great local fish market whom I trust to give me guidance. I usually tell them what we are thinking of making or what type of fish we want to make and they recommend what’s fresh.

The fish we made here is actually Artic Char because on the day I went to purchase it, the fish store recommended it!

Artic Char is very similar to salmon (I believe it’s even in the salmon family but again, I’m not an expert here!) and has a nice rich flavor but is even less fishy than salmon, is still rich in omega 3 fatty acids and has that fabulous pink color.

The lesson here is don’t be afraid to ask your local fish market or fish department for advice…  you learn a lot and usually end up with the freshest fish.

And salmon or artic char is extraordinarily versatile!

So let’s make the Greek Salad Salmon Bowls!

The recipe is written for 2 but you can scale the quantity up or down depending on how many people you’re feeding or if want leftovers for another day.

The first thing to do is bake the salmon.

I kept the seasoning to the bare minimum on the salmon because we don’t find you need much seasoning especially when paired with such a flavorful salad.

The salmon is just generously coated with olive oil, and generously sprinkled with fresh salt and pepper.

Then bake for 15 minutes…

Perfectly tender, flaky and delicious salmon every time!

While the salmon bakes, make the Greek Salad.

The salad is simply:

romaine lettuce or mixed greens 

chopped cucumbers

tomatoes

red onion

olives  (here I used kalamata, black olives would work well too)

crumbled feta

and an simple but delicious Lemony Vinaigrette (details below)

As with many of my savory recipes, I give ranges on ingredient quantities so you can add more or less of your favorite ingredients and adjust to taste.

But the key here is not only in the combination of the ingredients but the tangy and tasty Lemony Vinaigrette!

It’s just 7 ingredients whisked together and it’s SO GOOD, every time!

All you’ll need is:

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Red Wine Vinegar

Lemon Juice

Oregano

Dijon Mustard

Salt and  Pepper

Dress the salad, arrange in your bowl or on a platter, top with the baked salmon and enjoy!

You can see from the photo above that it would also make a great dish for entertaining, or even better yet it would be super impressive for a last minute dinner guest!

All you need is some basic ingredients, salmon (or Artic Char) and 15 minutes!

You have a fresh-tasting, colorful and delicious meal!

And look how tender and flaky the salmon is!

It falls right off the skin and is so delicious!

Ingredients

Salmon

  • 2 6oz pieces of salmon or Artic char approximately (we've used 5oz up to 7oz)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil more as needed
  • teaspoon kosher salt divided among the salmon fillets and to taste. 1/8 teaspoon is approximate, I usually just generously sprinkle so it may be a bit less
  • teaspoon pepper divided among the salmon fillets and to taste. 1/8 teaspoon is approximate, I usually just generously sprinkle with my pepper grinder

Greek Salad

  • 1 5oz container Spring mix, mixed leafy greens or romaine
  • ½ cucumber sliced, then quartered approximately 1/2 - 3/4 cup
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved more to taste
  • ½ red onion sliced thin and cut in half more or less to taste
  • ¼ cup kalamata olives more or less to taste; black olives work well too!
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta up to 1/2 cup

Lemony Vinaigrette

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • teaspoon kosher salt more to taste
  • teaspoon pepper more to taste

Instructions

Easy Baked Salmon

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Generously coat both sides of salmon in olive oil and place on prepared baking sheet. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Bake on the middle rack for 15 minutes or until salmon is tender -- it will be flaky with using a fork to slice.
  • Serve atop prepared salad and enjoy!

Lemony Vinaigrette

  • In a liquid measuring cup or small bowl, whisk all ingredients until well combined. Set aside. Note: can be made ahead and any extra dressing saves well in the refrigerator for several days in a sealed jar, just let come to room temperature and give a good shake or whisk as necessary if the oil separates.

Greek Salad

  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss with vinaigrette to taste when ready to serve.
  • Pro tip: for prettiest presentation, serve on a flat platter so the ingredients don't fall to the bottom of a bowl.
