- 4 salmon fillets no skin
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
- 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 small onion finely chopped
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes cut in half
- 1 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed
- 6 leaves basil thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp balsamic glaze for drizzling
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated
Season the salmon on both sides with Italian seasoning and salt and pepper.
In a large skillet heat 2 tbsp of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the salmon and cook until salmon is opaque for about 6 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side for another 6 minutes, until it flakes easily. Transfer to a plate.
Add the remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil to the skillet then add the chopped onion and cook until the onion is soft and translucent, about 4 to 5 minutes, make sure not to burn it. Add the garlic and saute for another 30 seconds until the garlic is aromatic.
Add the tomatoes to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook, until the tomatoes begin to burst, stirring frequently. Turn off the heat and drizzle the lemon juice over the tomatoes.
To serve, top salmon with bruschetta mixture on top. Garnish each piece of salmon with balsamic reduction, basil and a bit of Parmesan cheese.
Store leftover cooked salmon in shallow airtight containers or wrap lightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Store it in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
If planning to serve this later, it's best to store the bruschetta sauce seperately for reheating purposes. When ready to serve, preheat your oven to 275 F degrees and place the salmon on a baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes or until warm. Top with bruschetta and the rest of the garnishes and serve.
