Every Sunday, our first order of business at the farmers’ market is to go see Marilyn and Eileen, known to us (and pretty much everyone else who loves them) as the “fish ladies”. The fish ladies seem to sell every variety of the freshest seafood under the sun, and while we always try to sample a wide array of the fish they bring, from jumbo shrimp to calamari to red snapper, our most frequent pick is their exquisite wild salmon.

I vary the preparation of my salmon from time to time, but this one is by far the most popular with my kids. It features tons of olives (Chloe’s favorite) and a yogurt dip on the side which Kenya has been known to drink straight from the bowl.

This recipe may look like a very adult way to prepare this omega-3 packed fish, but it’s actually quite simple and packed with flavors that will appeal to everyone in your house.

    1. Made this tonight and it was Amazing! I am not a big salmon lover but this has changed my mind.

    2. We don’t like Olives. I wonder if I should just skip them, or if there is something else to use in place of them. Any suggestions?

    3. This was even better then I imagined it would be – thanks so much for the recipe. I love that your recipes have such a fresh taste, use multiple veggies, and aren’t fussy. This was so incredibly easy. My 2 year old thought was yummy.
