salmon with green bean, olive, and potato salad

This one was based off of a recipe for potato and green bean salad, with slight variations. Made heartier with the addition of chunks of wild salmon.

1 pound wild salmon
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds yukon gold potatoes
1 pound green beans
5 scallions, thinly sliced
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp whole-grain mustard
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, or more to taste
3 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup kalamata olives, halved

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Season salmon with salt and pepper and place on a sheet pan. Roast for 7-10 minutes, depending on the thickness.
3. Place potatoes in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until potatoes can be easily pierced with a knife.
4. Bring another pot of water to a boil. Add the green beans and blanch for 3-5 minutes, or until tender but still firm and bright green. Drain and rinse the green beans briefly under cold running water.
5. Meanwhile, combine scallions with vinegar, mustard, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Whisk in olive oil.
6. Drain the potatoes and, while still warm, cut each into bite-size pieces and immediately toss with the vinaigrette.
7. Cut the green beans in half on a diagonal. Add to the potatoes and stir to coat.
8. Add the kalamata olives and mix.
9. Break apart the salmon in large chunks and scatter on top of the salad.
