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.

easy, few ingredients, fresh, delicious, healthy
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.

Easy, Easy, Easy and fast!

Absolutely my favorite way to eat Salmon...My tomatoes, basil and garlic and the best Salmon I can buy!

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!

Gluten free
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.

Easy to cook.
