I used fresh tomatoes and added a few chunks of fresh orange in this recipe (along with the fresh OJ) and the flavors fused beautifully! The olives, orange, pepper...everything came together great and this was a very easy and flexible recipe. I'd definately make this again.

I used wild salmon, which may have caused some of the blandness. But, I really felt as if this dish was somewhat bland. It is very healthy, and that is always a plus.
