Seared Salmon with Caper Relish

I made this recipe up in my head at work today – but it involved tuna. The store didn’t have any, and I actually think the salmon I got instead may have worked even better. Pictured with Eggplant Orzo (recipe to follow).

About a pound of salmon, cut into 3 filets

about 1 tsp olive oil, plus a little cooking spray

maybe 1/3 red onion, minced

about 2 tbsp capers, with a little brine

about five olives, chopped

salt and pepper

Heat oil in cast iron skillet (add a little cooking spray) until just about smoking. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Place skin side up in hot pan. Sear about five minutes. Flip and cook another five minutes or so, covered. Remove from pan and keep warm.

Add onion, capers, brine and olives to pan and heat through. Top fish with relish and serve.
