2 (6 ounce)
boneless salmon fillets
tomato, thinly sliced
grated Parmesan cheese
Very good! Very simple! I'll be keeping this one! Here are my revisions, taken, in part, from other reviewers observations. Start with a VERY light sprinkle of garlic powder, salt and pepper. Evenly spread fresh basil, coarsely chopped. I grated fresh Parmesan directly onto the salmon and then again on top of Roma tomato slices. Another light sprinkle of salt and any leftover basil before a drizzle of olive oil. I let the salmon sit for about 30 to 45 minutes to allow it to soak up the flavors before baking it for 15 mins., followed by about 2 to 4 mins. under the broiler. I also think it should be served with a lemon wedge, it seemed to need a bit more citrus than what the tomatoes alone provide. Served with couscous and a salad of mixed greens.
Pretty yummy...tastes like Olive Garden meets Red Lobster. I chopped a couple cloves of garlic and added it to mine.
I used fresh basil leaves and layered them under the tomato slices. It made a pretty presentation and the family enjoyed it.
Very yummy and quick prep. I covered the entire salmon with sliced tomatoes but i found my favorite bites were the ones with the parmasean crusted directly on the fish - will do more of that next time.
This was great. I was looking for an alternative to the usual soy-sauce-based marinades I use for salmon, and this was perfect. The tomato flavor really goes nicely through the fish. A deceptively simple recipe that turns out awesome.
Amazing Salmon! We tried using a broiling pan though, and cooked it at 375 as suggested for 10 minutes and then turned the broil element on high for another 5-10. That gave us a crisp top and deliciously juicy salmon that literally melted in your mouth.
This was delicious! Perfect for a quick meal. I ended up using canned tomato rather than fresh, since it was what I had on hand, and the juices kept the salmon very moist. Great, quick recipe.
This was a nice simple meal. I did the sauteed spinach and pino noir as recommended and had a lovely evening with my husband.
