Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Stir oil, garlic and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Add tomatoes and toss to coat.

  • Arrange salmon on one side of the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cover the tops of the fillets with mozzarella pieces. Fill the other side of the pan with the tomato mixture. Bake until the salmon is just cooked through and the tomatoes have broken down, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir basil into the tomato sauce and serve over the salmon. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.


Tip: Balsamic glaze is balsamic vinegar that's cooked until it's very thick. Look for it with other vinegars in well-stocked supermarkets.

This is a winner! I told my son I was headed to the market to buy some fish for dinner and a grunt and groan ensued , he said "don't buy that white fish, get some salmon and make that dish with the mozzarella and glaze, that's my favorite". This is so easy and quick to prepare and a one pot dish, but I am going to have an ear on corn on the side. This is a keeper! Read More
