- Measure out a piece of heavy-duty foil (or use a double layer of regular foil) large enough for the salmon fillet.

Very good. I made this using swordfish steaks and cooked it in the oven. The garlic really came through. I used fresh picked tomatoes.
This recipe was perfect to use my fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden. The salmon tasted so good. DH liked it so much. Thanks Melanie :) Made for ZWT8 for Diners, Winers and Chives
Delicious! And using the foil made clean-up a snap. This would also work great in winter, using the oven. The tomatoes were warmed but not over-cooked. Thanks for this keeper. Made for ZWT8.
