Prep Time: 8 minutes
Cooking Time: 14 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes
- 4 skin on Stew's Naked Salmon Fillets (about 6 oz. each)
- 1 pint Cherry Tomatoes, halved
- 1 Tbsp. Capers, drained
- 1/2 teaspoon Stew's Kosher Salt, divided
- 3 Tbsp. Stew's 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/4 teaspoon Stew's Fine Ground Black Pepper
- 2 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
- 1 Tbsp. chopped Dill
Preheat oven to 425°F.
- In a small bowl, add the tomatoes, capers, vinegar, ¼ teaspoon salt, and toss together.
In a medium ovenproof skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the salmon fillets with the remaining salt and pepper.
Add the salmon fillets to the pan skin-side up and cook until bottoms are golden brown, 3-4 minutes.
Flip the salmon over and place the skillet in the oven. Roast about 7 minutes or until salmon is cooked through. Remove the salmon fillets to a platter and reserve warm.
Place a separate skillet over medium-high heat, add the tomato mixture, vegetable oil and remaining olive oil. Cook until tomatoes soften, about 2 – 3 minutes.
Pour over the fish, sprinkle with the chopped dill and serve.
