Baked Salmon with Fennel, Potato, and Olives

Baked Salmon with Fennel, Potato, and Olives

The richness of salmon pairs wonderfully with the salty zing of olives. It's wonderful to have a recipe that's so tasty and healthy, yet such a breeze to assemble. The most important trick is to ensure that the potatoes are sliced paper-thin so that they cook through at the same rate as the salmon. Recipe provided by Guest Adventurer Bron Marshall.
