North African-Style Alaska Salmon

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 4 

  • 1 can (4 oz.) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 3/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 Alaska Salmon steaks or fillets (4-6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons olive, canola, peanut or grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons slivered red onion

Reserve 2 tablespoons olives. Blend remaining olives, yogurt, parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, paprika, cumin, turmeric, salt, and pepper flakes; set aside.

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Salmon under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of salmon with oil. Place salmon in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.

Turn salmon over and sprinkle with lemon pepper. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 6 to 8 minutes for frozen salmon or 3 to 4 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.

To serve, spoon a dollop of sauce over each salmon portion; sprinkle on reserved olives and slivered onion.
