  • 6-oz. portion Columbia River steelhead salmon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 oz. extra virgin olive oil per salmon portion

Lightly coat salmon with olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Grill the top of the salmon first, roughly 4-5 minutes depending on the grill temperature. Turn and grill for another 3-4 minutes. This will give you a medium cooked dish. Top the salmon with Green Onion Vinaigrette once on the plate. Recipe yields one serving; for more, multiply the olive oil amount by the number of salmon portions.


  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tbsp. lemon zest
  • 1/2 oz. Champagne vinegar
  • 1/2 cup green onions, white part only
  • 1/2 oz. Italian parsley chopped fine.
  • 1/2 tbsp. kosher salt

Combine green onions, lemon juice, zest, vinegar and salt. Let rest for 10 minutes. Add parsley and oil. Stir to combine; let rest at room temperature for 10 minutes or while the salmon cooks.
Dress the salmon with the desired amount of this delicious vinaigrette. The leftover dressing will keep for up to 5 days in the refrigerator and can be used for salads, etc.


  • 1/2 cup white beans, cooked
  • 1/4 oz. red onions, julienne cut
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 oz. baby arugula
  • 1 oz. Italian vinaigrette
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of fresh ground pepper

Mix the red onions with white vinegar, water, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Let the mixture rest for a minimum of 1 hour. Remove the onions from the liquid. Discard the liquid. Bring white beans to room temperature or warm slightly before combining with the arugula. Add the Italian vinaigrette plus salt and pepper to taste to the white beans and arugula and toss all ingredients together. Serves 2 to 3.
