Ingredients

1/4
cup
pitted kalamata olives, chopped
1
tablespoon
capers, chopped
1
tablespoon
thinly sliced lemon zest
4
teaspoons
olive oil
kosher salt and black pepper
2
bunches broccolini (about 1 pound), ends trimmed
2
cloves garlic, sliced
1 1/4
pounds
skinless salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the olives, capers, lemon zest, 2 teaspoons of the oil, and ¼ teaspoon salt.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon of the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccolini, garlic, ½ cup water, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cover and cook, tossing occasionally, until the water has evaporated and the broccolini is just tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining teaspoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season the salmon with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook until opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Top the salmon and broccolini with the olive relish.
