Salmon Steaks with Caper and Anchovy Salsa

© 2024 |

© 2024 |

The umami-laden salsa prepared with capers, anchovies and herbs goes really well with grilled fish, meat and vegetables. It makes a nice dip for breadsticks or crudités, and is very good with boiled eggs. I used cilantro and dill for this quick and easy condiment recipe, but other herbs, like mint, arugula, tarragon and chives would make lovely substitutions.


Salmon Steaks with Caper and Anchovy Salsa

adapted from Sainsbury Magazine
Caper and Anchovy Salsa
  • 3x300 g-350 g Salmon steaks (or tuna, swordfish)
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper

  • 4 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 50 g Capers, drained and rinsed (chopped if large)
  • 2 tbsp Chopped dill, plus extra to serve
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro or flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  1. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Cover and set aside while prepare the salsa.
  2. Mix together the wasabi, lime zest and juice and chopped shallot. Finely chop the anchovies and add, along with the olive oil from the tin and the extra-virgin olive oil. Stir in the capers, dill and cilantro. Cover and put in a cool place.
  3. Heat the ghee in a grill pan until hot. Cook the salmon for 3-5 minutes each side. Scatter with extra dill and serve with the salsa and lime wedges.

I have never had me anchovies, not sure what exactly they are, is it seafood or just some pickled seeds of something?

Looks delicious, Angie! I make a similar anchovy and caper sauce but the wasabi sounds like intriguingly different touch.

Hi Angie, we love salmon and your salmon steaks with that creative sauce looks and sounds great. Thanks for the recipe! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

We try to eat salmon once a week at least, and serving it with your salsa would take it to the next level. Looks very tasty Angie.

Grace 4/3/24 19:49

Qué bueno Angie coincidir!
Así es como más me gusta preparar el pescado, no solo el salmón. Queda realmente delicioso.
La otra manera es hacer ceviche, típico plato de la gastronomía peruana.
Gracias Angie.
Siempre hermoso tu Blog!
