  1. Whisk together the vinaigrette, garlic, parsley, mustard, and anchovy paste. Set aside.
  2. Combine tomatoes, onion, and capers in a small bowl. Toss with 2 Tbsp vinaigrette and reserve.
  3. Cover potatoes by 1-2” of cold water in a medium sauce pan fitted with a steamer basket. Place haricot beans in basket. Bring to a boil and cook/steam for approximately 8 minutes or until potatoes are tender and haricot vert lightly steamed. Rinse haricot beans under cold water, drain, and toss into tomato mixture. Drain potatoes and toss with 2 Tbsp vinaigrette while still warm, set aside.
  4. Season arctic char filets with ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper. Lightly coat a nonstick sauté or grill pan with cooking spray and heat over high heat. Sear filets for approximately 4-5 minutes per side or until done. Set aside.
  5. Toss lettuce with remaining vinaigrette and divide across 4 dinner plates. Divide tomato salad and dressed potatoes evenly across plates and place in small composed piles. Add 1 sliced egg, 1 char filet, and 3 olives, to each plate. Garnish each plate with 1 tsp chives and serve.
