  • 1/3 cup pitted black olives, quartered


  1. Heat broiler, with rack 8 inches from heat. Grate 1 tablespoon orange zest, then cut orange into wedges. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss together orange zest and wedges, fennel, bell pepper, and oil and arrange in an even layer. Add salmon and season vegetables and salmon with salt and pepper.

    Super simple dish to make. Would never have thought to put these ingredients together for a meal. It turned out fresh, light, and tasty. I will definitely be adding this to my permanent recipe collection.

    This is a simple recipe that only 10-15 minutes and about 10-12 minutes to cook. It is delicious, nice combination of the fish with the vegetables which have a slight crunch. I used red bell pepper and served a side of fresh green beans and not only was it delicious it was beautiful to look at. Good for family or company.
