Feta Capered Salmon

February 26, 2012

If you have never cooked with capers before, don’t let them scare you.  They are delicious – especially combined with the feta in this savory salmon recipe.  This is a dish we will definately make over and over.  It is delicious!  It looks like you spent a lot of time in the kitchen but it is so fast and easy.

Salmon filets

olive oil

1/2 lemon

2 T. dry Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing

1/2 tsp. italian seasoning

1/2 tsp. garlic granules

1/2 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. salt

fresh or bottled chopped garlic

feta cheese, crumbled

capers

These are the seasonings used in this recipe.

Rinse salmon filets and pat dry with paper towels.  Place in a foil lined 9 x 13 baking dish.

Brush lightly with olive oil.

Squeeze 1/2 lemon over fish.

Combine ranch dressing, italian seasoning, garlic granules, paprika and salt. Sprinkle liberally over fish.

Sprinkle fresh or bottled garlic over fish.

Sprinkle feta over the fish.  Top with drained capers.  Use A LOT of feta and capers – more than you think!  This is the best part!

Lastly, lightly drizzle with olive oil again.

Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes – depending on the thickness of the filets.  Salmon will flake with a fork when done.  For the last 3 – 5 minutes, place fish under the broiler to toast the cheese.

Weight Watchers:  Points would depend on the weight of each filet and the amount of  olive oil, and feta used.  Olive oil is 4 PointsPlus per tablespoon and the feta is 2 PointsPlus per 1/4 cup.
