Directions for: Pan Rushed Salmon with Three Tomatoes


4 6-oz salmon fillets

sprinkles salt and pepper

splash extra vegetable oil

4 clove garlic, minced

1 cup canned whole tomatoes

1 pint ripe cherry tomatoes

½ cup dried tomato

1 Tbsp dried oregano

1 tsp salt

1 dash pepper

¼ cup fresh oregano


1. Match a large skillet with a tight fitting lid. Heat the 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.

2. 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, oregano, salt & pepper. Bring the works to a simmer and cook gently, awakening and blending the sauces flavours, 2 or 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to a low simmer, carefully nestle the fillets into the sauce and cover tightly creating a mini oven. Cook gently until the salmon cooks through, about 4 to 5 minutes. Plate the salmon, top with the sauce and garnish with the freshly chopped oregano. Serve and share.
