Salmon with Black Olive Tapenade


Recipe was created for Hofer Slovenia.

Perfect recipe, calling for Mediterranean vibes! Quick and easy mid-week lunch idea.

For those who doesn’t know what is olive tapenade, it is a thick sauce made from olives as the base. I used only the best ingredients: capers for a nice salty taste, sun-dried tomatoes with intense sweet-tart flavour, parsley with a herbaceous, and slightly bitter taste and lemon for freshness and balance.
