Salmon with Capers and Greens

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at This is also wonderful with any of the ready to use fish seasonings or rubs. Great served with fresh Apricot Salsa!

1-2 fresh salmon fillets or steaks
2-3 teaspoons flour
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Sweet or smokey paprika
2 -3 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice or white wine or sherry
1-2 teaspoons capers, more if desired
fresh lettuce and other greens for serving

Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Brush with a little olive oil and then sprinkle with the flour, salt, pepper and paprika. (or use a good quality fish rub). Heat a heavy bottomed saute pan, adding the oil after about 30 seconds. Heat about 1 minute and then add the fish. Cook on medium high heat 2-3 minutes. Do not let the pan get too hot, the oil should not be smoking. Carefully turn the fish and cook 1-2 minutes, or until done. Do not overcook! Remove fish to a plate. Quickly add lemon juice to the pan, add some capers and cook and stir just a little to make a drizzling sauce. White wine is good to add, as well! Drizzle sauce over fish and serve over a plate of fresh lettuce or other greens. And, don't forget the Apricot Salsa!!
