My family has always been big on seafood, and this pan-fried salmon went over really well! The fresh tomato and basil topping complement the fillets beautifully.

"I used the recipe and made a piece of salmon steak and a piece of salmon filet. We like the filet much better. The steak felt very dry. I also added a bit of sherry vinegar to the tomato basil sauce."
