Mediterranean-Twist Salmon

Rated as 4.8 out of 5 Stars

"A little twist on your basic salmon recipe. It's healthy, delicious, and a real crowd pleaser! Make extra because everyone will want seconds! This recipe goes great over couscous. If you are like me and love tomatoes, add 1 cup instead of 1/2 cup."

I goofed and put 2 tablespoons of the balsamic vinegar and added the garlic. To be precise, I did everything backwards and goofed it yet it still tasted great!

Family loved it! The stovetop sautéed of the salmon added a lot of flavor over a traditional bake. The balsamic reduced and added a wonderful sweetness.

I'm not a tomato person, but this was excellent! will make again many more times!

Really liked this. Used some of the sauce for a topping for veggies since I doubled it.

This was Fantastic! My husband and I both really enjoyed this dish. We eat a lot of salmon, so we are always looking for new ideas and this is now our new favorite!


Love the sauce. Turned out just right sweet and tangy.
