1. Assemble the Cuisinart® PrepExpress™ with the 3.0mm Shred/Spaghetti Cone and Straight Feed Tube. Spiralize the zucchini. Reserve.
2. In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the salmon, skin side down. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and sear, about 2 minutes. Add the olives and capers. Cook for 1 minute. Carefully add the diced tomatoes with the liquid, cover, and reduce heat to low. Gently simmer until cooked, about 10 minutes.
3. Once salmon is ready, transfer to a serving plate.
4. Continue cooking sauce, uncovered, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add the spiralized zucchini zoodles and toss to just warm through.
5. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Zucchini will release liquid during cooking; serve sauce and (zoodles) with a slotted spoon.
