My husband wasn't looking forward to this recipe but I was intrigued to try a tomato based sauce with the salmon. We loved it ! Fab taste and quick and easy to make. Followed recipe without changes and will def be making again. Assumed that the basil and lemon rind were garnishes as the recipe didn't say. Served with rostii potatoes and steamed broccoli.
