Salmon with Vodka Sauce and Parsley Salad

The Good News The parsley in the bright salad here is loaded with antioxidants; the capsaicin in the chiles can, counterintuitively, relieve pain; and the salmon is full of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

  • 1 medium shallot, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Four 6-ounce skin-on wild salmon fillets
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/3 cup vodka
  • 1 1/2 cups flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 1/2 long red chiles, seeded and sliced

How to make this recipe

  1. In a bowl, combine the shallot and lime juice and let stand for 10 minutes. Whisk in 3 tablespoons of the oil and season with salt and pepper.

  2. In a nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of oil. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and cook, skin side down, over moderately high heat until crisp, 6 minutes. Flip the salmon and cook until just done, 4 minutes longer; transfer to plates.

  3. Discard all but 1 1/2 teaspoons of the fat in the skillet. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Pour in the vodka and simmer until reduced by half, 1 minute. Toss the parsley and chiles with the shallot. Serve the salmon with the vodka sauce and parsley salad.
