Rec: Lemon-Garlic Roast Salmon on New Potatoes

---The Marinade:
1/2 cup good-tasting extra-virgin olive oil
5 large cloves garlic
Juice of 1 large lemon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
---The Fish:
4 (1-in.)-thick salmon steaks , or Pacific cod or halibut
2 to 3 medium-size, unpeeled redskin potatoes
2 generous teaspoon pickled capers, rinsed, divided
Leaves from 2 to 3 branches parsley

About a half hour before cooking, preheat oven to
400 degrees. In a food processor purée together the
olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and salt and pepper to
taste. Pour over the salmon steaks and refrigerate
20 to 30 minutes. Have a shallow baking dish that
can hold the salmon steaks, with some room to
spare. Boil potatoes until barely tender. Peel and
thinly slice the potatoes, then overlap slices to
cover the bottom of the dish. Moisten the potatoes
with a little marinade and sprinkle with half the
capers. Top with the steaks and the rest of the
marinade and capers. Bake the steaks 8 to 10
minutes, or until the center of a steak is no
longer raw-looking. Serve hot, sprinkled with the
leaves of parsley.

Serves 4
Refrigerate remainder
Can be reheated in microwave
