  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. Mash minced garlic and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl and stir in oil.
  3. Measure out a piece of heavy-duty foil (or use a double layer of regular foil) large enough for the salmon fillet.
  4. Coat the foil with nonfat cooking spray.
  5. Place the salmon skin-side down on the foil and squirt the lemon juice all overs it. Then spread the garlic mixture all over it.
  6. Sprinkle with about ¾ of the basil.
  7. Overlap tomato slices on top and sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper.
  8. Transfer the salmon on the foil to the grill. Grill until the fish flakes easily, 10 to 12 minutes.
  9. Use two large spatulas to slide the salmon from the foil to a serving platter.
  10. Serve the salmon sprinkled with the remaining basil.

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.
