Salmon Bruschetta

This was a recipe I’ve been thinking about for a while, then I decided to try it out with my best buddy Ian. You will be amazed at how tender and juicy the salmon will be. Don’t cut corners on the garlic, this is what it’s all about.

4 portions salmon fillet about 3oz each
4 cloves garlic minced
2-3 large tomatoes diced
Olive oil
2 sprigs fresh basil chopped
Pinch dried oregano
One lemon
Sea salt
Fresh ground pepper
One bunch asparagus

Heat oven on high broil and make sure rack is about six inches from the broil element. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper on both sides. In a bowl add three quarters of the garlic with the tomatoes, some basil, oregano, salt, pepper and about a 1/4 cup of olive oil and mix altogether bruschetta. Cut the tough stem end off the asparagus and add two tbsp olive oil and remaining garlic. Preheat an oven safe casserole pan large enough to hold the salmon and asparagus together in the oven for about 5 minutes. Spoon bruschetta mix on top of each piece of salmon and carefully put the fish in the heated casserole pan skin side down,
add in the asparagus and cook in broil for about 8 minutes. If salmon is a thick cut may need a few more minutes cooking time. When salmon is ready plate each fillet with asparagus side and squeezes of lemon on fish and asparagus.

Serve with crusty bread or pita and drink with Pinot Noir or any dry white wine will work well.

Enjoy and please comment.

Thank you

  1. This is making me hungry and I ate already! Nice Greek and Italian dish…

  2. So easy to do and delicious. I think it would be very versatile too – you could use another type of fish, or even chicken and I think it would work quite well.

    • Well I think fatty fish works best, like salmon, tuna or trout. Chicken breast takes a while to cook unlike fish which can be pink in the middle, chicken needs to cook through, but you could flatten it or precook for 10 minutes, turn then spoon on bruschetta for the last 7-10 minutes, could add cheese on top too since it’s not fish

  3. I just made this tonight for dinner and it was outstanding. I added some cannellini beans to the bruschetta mixture because I had some in the fridge that I had to use up but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.
