Moist, flakey, and full of flavor, this Greek Salmon is a show-stopping meal that comes together in under 30 minutes. It’s full of Mediterranean flavors and the salsa paired with the salmon is a breeze to make. Made all in one pan, this is the perfect meal for a busy weeknight.
Brush a tablespoon of olive oil over the salmon fillets on both sides.
In a small bowl mix the seasonings; oregano, basil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Rub the seasonings over the salmon evenly.
Heat a large skillet with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Add the salmon and fry until crispy and golden for 4-5 minutes and flip it to the other side gently and cook further for 2-3 minutes.
Meanwhile prepare the salsa. To a wide bowl combine ingredients; tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, kalamata olives, feta cheese, olive oil, lemon juice, dill, salt & pepper. Gently toss together.
Serve the salmon with a spoonful of salsa on top.
If you do not have fresh dill for the Greek salsa, you can see dried dill.
When searing the salmon, don’t move it around until you’re ready to flip it. If you move it too soon it’s likely to stick and tear.
You can also bake the Greek salmon in the oven at 400 degrees F for 8-10 minutes, uncovered.
Make sure to pat dry the salmon on both sides of each filet with a paper towel. This helps to take the excess moisture out of the salmon so the seasoning will stick better and they get a nicer sear on the outside.
Avoid overcooking the salmon as it’ll be dry and tough.
