Prep: 30 mins
Total: 30 mins
Rated : Not yet rated
8   Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
3 tablespoons  red-wine vinegar
1 tablespoon  capers, rinsed and chopped
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper, divided
3 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
2 thick slices  day-old whole-grain bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (see Tip)
2   large tomatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
1   medium cucumber, peeled (if desired), seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 cup  thinly sliced red onion
1/4 cup  thinly sliced fresh basil
1 pound  center-cut salmon, skinned (see Tip) and cut into 4 portions
1/2 teaspoon  kosher salt
1. Preheat grill to high.
2. Whisk olives, vinegar, capers and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Slowly whisk in oil until combined. Add bread, tomatoes, cucumber, onion and basil.
3. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Season both sides of salmon with salt and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Grill the salmon until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
4. Divide the salad among 4 plates and top each with a piece of salmon.
If using fresh bread, you can grill the bread slices along with the salmon and then cut them into cubes. Alternatively, cut bread into cubes, place on a baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees F until dry.
How to skin a salmon fillet: Place salmon fillet on a clean cutting board, skin-side down. Starting at the tail end, slip the blade of a long knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding down firmly with your other hand. Gently push the blade along at a 30 degrees angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.
To oil the grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to spray the food with cooking spray before placing it on the grill.
