Since then, I've been on a mission to find as many tasty fish recipes as I can. We had the opportunity on Q's birthday to feed our family with a great big salmon. We had seen Michael Smith make a pan rushed salmon with three tomatoes on his show and knew we had to try it out.
Pan Rushed Salmon with Three Tomatoes
Adapted from Chef Michael's Kitchen
1 large salmon
2 TB minced garlic
1 onion, diced
1 can, whole tomatoes
2 pints cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Season the salmon filets with salt and pepper, then sear until lightly browned on each side, flipping carefully, 3 or 4 minutes per side. Place the seared salmon on a clean plate and cover lightly with foil.
Add the onion and garlic to the pan and lightly sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the whole tomatoes, hand crushing as you go. Add the cherry and dried tomatoes, salt & pepper. Bring the works to a simmer and cook gently, 2 or 3 minutes. Place the tomato mixture in a roasting pan and place the fillets on top of the sauce. Cover tightly and place in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.
