Jesse's Pictorial Tomato Basil Salmon
Ingredients and Equipment
2 (6ounce) salmon filets
1 tablespoon of dried basil (we substituted for fresh basil because thats what we had)
1 tomato thinly sliced
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
What you will need for equipment:
If you don't like salmon, Swordfish might be a good substitute for it. However you may need to cook the swordfish meat partially before adding the other ingredients. Other then that the method would be the same.
If you would like a fresher taste and like fishing, my personal suggestion would be to use fresh brown, brooke, lake or rainbow trout. Rainbow trout is the most common in the waterways, however if you can get lake or brooke trout, that would be much better. In order to use any of the fish in the trout family, you would have to gut the fish and use the full bodies as a filet (the fish are relatively small compared to salmon). The cook time would take about the same time and i would suggest putting garlic and butter inside the fish, and then having the cheese, tomato and oil on top. If you were to go this route, you would have to fish through the bones in the fish because they are to small to remove prior to cooking. This is a slightly more difficult process, but it would have a much fresher taste then any other fish you could try, as well as being healthier for you. The choice is yours, but if possible, i suggest freshly caught trout to use for this recipe.
