This Veracruz style salmon is served over greens and then topped with a mixture of tomatoes, green olives and capers. A delicious, new way to serve salmon.


Step 1

Combine coffee granules, sugar, bouillon, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and white pepper in a small bowl.

Step 2

Rub salmon filets with coffee mixture on top and bottom.

Step 3

Heat 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add tomato, olives and capers; cook for 5 minutes or until the skin begins to peel from the tomato pieces. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.

Step 4

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Carefully place both salmon pieces in skillet; pan fry for 4 minutes on one side. Turn over and fry second side for 3 minutes.

Step 5

Whisk olive oil, vinegar, shallot, mustard, salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper in a small bowl until well mixed.

Step 6

Place greens in a large bowl; toss with vinaigrette until evenly coated. Place 1 ½ cups salad on each serving plate. Place salmon filets on greens and top with half tomato/olive mixture. Sprinkle with lemon juice.


Instead of greens, salmon can be served atop cooked pasta or white steamed rice.
