Very easy recipe. Lots of flavor. I thawed individual salmon portions from the freezer and cooked them on a stove-top grilling skillet to avoid time and mess of firing up the outdoor grill. Great quick-easy-tasty dish. Lovely presentation adds a little cheer on those days when you are exhausted after work.
Moist and Easy Perfectly Grilled Salmon Great for when it's too hot to cook indoors this second time I used it for salmon tacos. The beauty of this recipe is the thin sliced tomatoes hold the moisture in while grilling. I used a grill with holes in it instead of the foil. By heating the grill to very hot then using a paper towel soaked in corn oil the salmon didn't stick. My salmon steaks were very thick and needed extra grilling which I did for the entire time on the unlit side of the gas BBQ. In spite of the extra time they were so moist. Please use fresh basil so much better than dried. Pros: Stays moist perfect flesh when using wild caught salmon
too much garlic i suggest that you grill the salmon first to 3/4 of the way and then put the tomatoes on. Use 1/2 the garlic. Pros: easy to prep Cons: tomatoes limit the cooking temp makes mushy salmon
This is delicious and elegant Made this tonight - I got a bunch of fresh basil in my farm shares and some native tomato - so I went and bought 2 pieces of Wild King salmon (very expensive yikes!) but I wanted to make a nice meal for my husband. I thought I'd have some trouble grilling on the foil and then getting if off but had no problem at all. I cooked it like 14 minutes as the pieces were fairly thick and I don't like my fish raw-ish man they came out beautiful! I served them w/ lemon wedge fresh avocado and some thin salted cucumbers (also in the farm share!) in sour cream. Served it with a nice chardonnay - I will make this again! I may not spring for the super expensive salmon but it was worth every penny. My husband absolutely LOVED it.
Most often repeated Eating Well recipe! I have made this dish going on three times now since I first made it a month ago. It is just perfect! So easy fresh and healthy! I highly recommend splurging and getting a good thick cut of salmon fresh from the seafood counter for this (none of those freezer-packed filets) if you can afford it. Pros: easy few ingredients fresh delicious healthy Cons: good salmon can be a little pricey
Moist Tender and Gorgeous I had fresh home grown tomatoes and basil. I shopped for fresh (not frozen) WILD salmon. I got a long fillet and followed the tip to remove a few minor bones. Mine looked as good as the photo and tasted even better. I served it to company and they loved it. We also had fresh green beans corn on the cob crusty fresh sourdough bread and a green salad. Pros: Easy Easy Easy and fast!
Easy and delicious So easy and delicious! I have celiac disease and this is another wonderful gluten free recipie.This also produced a very elegant plated meal perfect for company. I cooked it in foil on the gas grill using wild king salmon. It was perfection! Pros: Gluten free
I grilled our fresh wild caught sockeye salmon fillet on a cedar plank. The only difficulty I had was with the cooking time. The cedar plank may have extended the time but the slices of tomato seemed to keep it from cooking as quickly as well. But once it hit my mouth! Wow. I used Brandywine tomatoes from the local farmers' market and fresh basil from my garden and it was so good with the cedar flavor infused in it that I almost CRIED. Absolutely amazing.
I also cedar plank grilled mine but I did not have a timing problem. Maybe because I only made half a recipe? Anyway I agree that this almost made me cry it was so delicious--especially with the cedar infusion. I served this with the roasted corn salsa http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/roasted_corn_salsa.html. Amazing!
What to do with the tomatoes my neighbor handed me today? Since I wanted to cook salmon for dinner I was delighted to find this recipe using tomatoes with the added WOW of garlic and basil. It's a keeper for sure.
Ok I usually mess up any dinner I fix but this came out perfect! Needed to cook little longer but that is because our gas grill was turned down too low.. used some heirloom tomatoes from a good friends garden and basil I have on our deck! Absolutely perfect dinner!
My boyfriend and I absolutely loved this. He is really picky but he raved about how awesome this was from the first bite and told me that we should definitely make it again. We halved the recipe using two frozen filets (250 grams total) because it's hard and expensive to get fresh salmon where we live. We don't have a grill either so I wrapped the fish in foil put it in a grill pan and cooked it over the stove for around 8 minutes. It turned out great.
I have never liked salmon... until now! I used sustainable wild-caught Alaskan Sockeye Salmon. Instead of grilling I put the salmon in foil and baked at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. I also did not have "fresh" basil so I used organic dried basil. Superb!
Great Summer Night Dinner! You must use the wild caught salmon. Much much better flavor! I don't have a grill either so I baked it in the oven with my vegetables. (I had Eatingwell's roasted cauliflower) I had my oven at 450F and baked salmon for 20 minutes. Pros: Easy to cook.
