Roast Salmon with a Basil and Sweet Pepper Sauce

Roast Salmon with a Basil and Sweet Pepper Sauce


Serves 4

  •     2 roasted red bell peppers
  •     1/3 cup olive oil
  •     4 salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each, scaled but not skinned
  •     2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  •     2 tablespoons shredded fresh basil leaves


  1.     Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2.     Puree the peppers in a food processor, and slowly add the olive oil. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Pour the mixture into a small saucepan, and gently heat the sauce on low.
  3.     Heat the vegetable oil and butter in a roasting pan over high heat. Season the salmon with salt and pepper, and place it in the pan, skin-side up. Bake for 2 minutes. Then turn and bake for about 6 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through.
  4.     Just before serving, add the basil to the sauce. Plate the salmon, and spoon the sauce over it. Serve immediately.
