Spanish Marinated Salmon Fillet Recipe

Serves/Makes: 8 - 10 as part of tapas


  • 2 pound salmon fillet
  • 1 small red sweet bell pepper
  • 2 pickled onions, finely chopped
  • 2 pickled sweet gherkins, finely chopped

  • Marinade:
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 pinch paprika
How to cook Spanish Marinated Salmon Fillet:
  • To make the marinade, whisk all the ingredients with some salt and pepper in a bowl and set aside.
  • Cut the salmon in half and place in a lightly greased steamer. Fill a saucepan half full of water, bring to a boil and sit the steamer on top. Steam, covered, for 10-12 minutes, or until the salmon is tender and cooked through. The flesh should flake easily yet still be moist. Place a pancake turner between the skin and flesh of the salmon and lift the salmon so the skin comes away. Peel away any remaining skin.
  • Place the salmon in a nonreactive dish to fit tightly in a single layer. Stir the marinade, then pour it over the hot salmon. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat the broiler. Cut the red pepper into quarters. Broil, skin-side-up, until the skin blackens and blisters. Place in a plastic bag and allow to cool, then peel away the skin. Slice thinly.
  • Remove the salmon from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving. Lift out of the marinade (reserving the marinade) and cut into 1-3/4 inch pieces. Place the salmon in a dish and pour the marinade over. Sprinkle with the onion and gherkins and garnish each piece with a strip of red pepper.
