Instructions Checklist
  • Season both sides of the salmon steaks with salt and pepper.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons cooking oil in a skillet over medium heat. Briefly fry the salmon in hot oil until lightly cooked, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and set aside.

  • Add 1 tablespoon cooking oil to the skillet and allow to get hot before adding the onion and garlic; cook and stir the onion and garlic in the hot oil until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir the diced tomatoes into the mixture and season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking until the moisture from the tomatoes makes a sauce, about 5 minutes more. Return the salmon to the skillet and allow to simmer in the sauce until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes. Stir the beaten egg into the sauce and stir until well integrated; serve hot.

I made this tonight for dinner and we enjoyed it. I have used alot of recipes from this site and only make changes when I do not have what is called for as the case tonight. Along with the tomatoes I used 1 can of diced tomatoes(zesty chili) as I did not have enough fresh to double the recipe. Also I am not sure if the egg at the end is really needed, my family feels it would be fine without and just have more of a tomato style sauce. I served with pasta and salad. We will put this into one of our many favorites for the Lenten season. Thank you for a wonderful dish that could also be made with chicken for those folks that do not care for fish. Read More

I loved it! I am on a low carb diet but I can imagine it would be even better over rice. I liked that it was so different from the dill or blacked recipes I get in a rut for salmon. It was very different! Read More

Tasty sauce and so quick and easy! I had to use a can of diced tomatoes because good tomatoes are out of season right now. My sauce turned out slightly pink because of the egg....make sure you beat the egg real well and stir quickly as you add to the sauce. I didn't taste the egg but it thickened the sauce up quickly. It worked great with my Salmon burgers served over whole wheat pasta. Read More

Loved this absolutely simple and hassle free recipe! (I also used canned diced tomatoes). I was hesitant about the egg at the end but I loved it. I found it killed a little of that tangy tomato taste that stays if you don't cook tomato sauce long enough. My husband also loved it and I will definitely be making this one often. Thanks for posting!! Read More

Loved it. Full of flavor. We left the salmon whole so stirred in the eggs before putting the salmon back in. So delicious and more hearty than most salmon dishes. Read More

Lots of flavor. Served over brown rice but not even sure it needed to be served over rice. I'm doing a yeast-free cleanse and this recipe was perfect. Will be making this again and soon. I had fresh spinach on hand and tossed some in at the end just before I added the egg. Only recommendation I would make is double the sauce because it is so good you'll want more. Read More
