Salmon with tomatoes, peas and olives

Posted: March 7, 2009 by nietize in Fish



2 salmon fillets

2 cans of plum tomatoes
1 onion, finely diced
1 garlic cloves, finely diced
2 celery sticks, finely diced
1 bay leaf
1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
tabasco sauce

Saute the garlic, celery, bay leaf and onion till soft. Add the 2 cans of plum tomatoes, the balsamic vinegar and the tabasco sauce. Do not break up the plum tomatoes. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Break up the plum tomatoes.

Preheat the oven 190 degrees. Lay the salmon fillets on a baking dish, season with sea salt and pepper. Scatter peas and olives around the fish. Pour the tomato sauce over the fish and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Serve with warm bread.

The tomato sauce is from one of Jamie Oliver’s cookbook. It’s really a very convenient recipe for tomato sauce which you can use for many different dishes. This combination, well it was supposed to be a Jewish Italian dish, from my four ingredients cookbook but i balked at the price of a tuna steak so I decided to replace it with salmon fillets.
