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!

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.
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!
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.
We loved it. Also used wild sockeye - so moist, flavorful and easy!
