For this recipe, you will need about one pound of fresh salmon. Salt and pepper to taste are the most important things when preparing this dish. In addition, you will need about half a cup of chopped fresh olives, a quarter teaspoon of coarsely chopped parsley, and about one tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice. In a nonstick skillet, cook the salmon over low heat until it is pink. Drain off any excess fat from the fish. Place the fish at one end of a plate, cover with olive oil and place in the oven at 300 degrees until the outside of the fish begins to brown.
Remove the fish from the oven and allow it to cool slightly. Using a fork, carefully remove the scales from the outside of the fish. If the olive oil has dissolved completely, you can wipe away the remains using paper towels. Place the fish on a plate, add some extra virgin olive oil and top with your choice of salad dressing. The dressing you choose is entirely personal; think about something light and bright, or perhaps a little more tart.
You may feel like serving this meal as a side dish with some crackers or sliced vegetables. Feel free to serve it alongside some red or white bell pepper.
