This delicious salmon recipe is courtesy of Margot Olshan. At her Connecticut cafe, Margot finishes this salmon dish in the oven. But for a home cook, finishing on the stove works best.

Instructions Checklist
  • Coat salmon with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add to a medium skillet set over medium-high heat, skin-side down. Cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn fish and continue cooking until fish is still pink in the center, but flakes apart easily with a fork, about 5 minutes.

  • Divide spinach evenly between two serving plates; top with rice. Set salmon over rice. Drizzle 1/4 cup vinaigrette and 1 tablespoon chimichurra sauce over each piece of salmon; garnish each with a lime wedge. Serve immediately.

Great for entertaining since vinaigrette and chimichurra sauce can be made before guests arrive. Beautiful presentation. Salmon recipe says to use only 1/4 cup of the vinaigrette recipe. I made full recipe and had lots left over. Used vinaigrette leftovers next day as salsa w/chips. Next time I'll make half as much.
