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.

My husband rarely rates anything five stars but this recipe got his full approval. The topping adds wonderful flavor without overshadowing the salmon and it makes a beautiful presentation. Thanks for sharing. Read More

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. Read More

This was one recipe that did not bowl me over. I had difficulty "marrying" the flavor of salmon with that of balsamic vinegar and tomatoes. Two others at the table did like it though. It was just a personal thing and the recipe will most likely please a lot of folks. Read More
