Tomato Basil Salmon

We eat salmon at least once a week in our house and I usually just lightly season it with some salt, pepper and ginger and toss it in the oven. It is really good made this way (and really quick and easy), but we had some basil and tomatoes remaining in the backyard, so tried something different tonight. This is equally quick and easy and was delicious. It would probably also be great with some balsamic vinegar drizzled on top. I'll be making this one again for sure! (And a bonus: when it was baking in the oven, my 4 year old son, Charlie, asked "what is that delicious smell??" You can't beat that!).

Tomato Basil Salmon


2 6-ounce wild salmon filets
Salt (optional) and pepper, for seasoning
1 tsp dried basil
4 fresh tomato slices
2 tsp grated parmesan cheese


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees

2. Place salmon filets on foil-lined baking sheet, skin side down. Season filets with salt, pepper and dried basil. Top with tomato slices. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes, or until fish is cooked through.

What are the nutritional benefits of wild salmon? Wild salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins B6 and B12, vitamin D, and protein.
