Salmon Fillets in a Spicy Tomato Sauce


I just love preparing a gourmet-looking and tasting dish and this was so easy! A thank you to City Fish for the salmon steaks. Ceramic bakeware like Emile Henry is perfect for this recipe because it goes from the oven to the table. I made the entire recipe in one baking dish.
