The fish is served with a grapefruit-orange relish, which adds a bright, fresh flavor. The recipe is among the practical selections of about 266 in Better Homes and Gardens "Dinnertime Express" (Meredith Books, $24.95)

This week we continue with the different types of muffuletta. This is a mouth-watering version without scooping out the delicious soft innards of bread. Allow the olive salad and extra virgin olive oil to drench every nook and cranny to give you deep flavor and delicious combinations. This recipe will also lend itself to my spicier side of life. I enjoy a little heat in my sandwich and this recipe will showcase just that.

In any case, experiment a little to see what heat index is right for you and begin to build from there.

This "super food" is bad for the salmon and bad for us when we eat the fish.
