Recipe by Queen Dana

One of my husband's recipes. We like to make this with lemon basil; it gives the dish great flavor!

This was a real crowd pleaser. Comments started pouring in from the first bite. I made sure the onions were almost done before adding the garlic. Seems the garlic overcooks if I add them at the same time. I used canned diced tomatoes, so didn't simmer as long as suggested. I used half and half and fresh basil. The salmon was incredibly tender. It took me 20 minutes to cook to a temp of 135F, but my filets were about 8 oz instead of 6. Will definitely try it with fresh tomatoes next time. I was in a bit of a time crunch.
