That’s no pepperoni pizza, that’s our delicious, healthy dinner tonight.
It’s our 10th wedding anniversary today, but hubby has to work late (we forgot to celebrate during this past three-day weekend) I told him not to worry about dining out. I will prepare a special dinner instead.
The recipe I picked is Grilled Salmon with Tomatoes & Basil. It’s delightfully simple, but my version is baked. One reason for that is I did not want my husband to do the grilling when it’s 30F degrees outside. The other thing that is different is I used Kirkland Atlantic Salmon from Costco, not a whole wild salmon fillet. Instead of regular tomatoes, I used grape or cherry tomatoes — they seem easier to apply (about 10 pcs., sliced thinly with a steak knife, for two salmons). I did not have enough basil, so there were no fresh ones to garnish after the salmon was cooked. The amount of salt was reduced from 1/2 to 1/4 tsp. because the salmon is already pre-marinated in salt. I mixed the minced basil with olive oil and salt, before dabbing it on.
Oh, and I almost forgot: bake at 375F for 15-20 mins.
