Very good! Very simple! I'll be keeping this one! Here are my revisions, taken, in part, from other reviewers observations. Start with a VERY light sprinkle of garlic powder, salt and pepper. Evenly spread fresh basil, coarsely chopped. I grated fresh Parmesan directly onto the salmon and then again on top of Roma tomato slices. Another light sprinkle of salt and any leftover basil before a drizzle of olive oil. I let the salmon sit for about 30 to 45 minutes to allow it to soak up the flavors before baking it for 15 mins., followed by about 2 to 4 mins. under the broiler. I also think it should be served with a lemon wedge, it seemed to need a bit more citrus than what the tomatoes alone provide. Served with couscous and a salad of mixed greens. Read More

I used fresh basil leaves and layered them under the tomato slices. It made a pretty presentation and the family enjoyed it. Read More

Very yummy and quick prep. I covered the entire salmon with sliced tomatoes but i found my favorite bites were the ones with the parmasean crusted directly on the fish - will do more of that next time. Read More

Amazing Salmon! We tried using a broiling pan though and cooked it at 375 as suggested for 10 minutes and then turned the broil element on high for another 5-10. That gave us a crisp top and deliciously juicy salmon that literally melted in your mouth. Read More

This was great. I was looking for an alternative to the usual soy-sauce-based marinades I use for salmon and this was perfect. The tomato flavor really goes nicely through the fish. A deceptively simple recipe that turns out awesome. Read More

Excellent! I followed the ingredients and directions as written. I used roma tomatoes sweet basil and freshly grated parmesan reggiano cheese. The baking time is spot on! The layer of ingredients made for a very pretty dish. I am pleasantly surprised at how delicious this turned out. The salmon is so tender moist and juicy! I love parmesan cheese and it melted nicely on top of the salmon. A nice combination of fresh flavors! Everything just melted in my mouth and I was in heaven! This is perfect for a late summer dinner - especially here in Hawaii! I served this dish with "Fast and Easy Spinach with Shallots " "Herbed Rice Pilaf " and "Lemon Ginger Shrimp " all from this website and very tasty! Read More

This was delicious! Perfect for a quick meal. I ended up using canned tomato rather than fresh, since it was what I had on hand, and the juices kept the salmon very moist. Great, quick recipe. Read More
