  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine first 10 ingredients in a large bowl. Add salmon, turning to coat. Cover and let stand 15 minutes. Remove salmon, reserving marinade. Place salmon in a 13x9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  3. Cut lemon in half lengthwise; cut 1 lemon half crosswise into 1/8 inch thick slices. Reserve remaining lemon half for another use.
  4. Add the lemon slices, red and green bell pepper slices, 2 Tbsp of water and tomato slices to marinade; stir gently to coat. Arrange lemon mixture in an even layer over salmon; cover with foil.
  5. Bake at 400°F oven for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  6. Place 1 fillet on each of 4 plates over rice. Top each serving with about 1/2 cup lemon mixture and drizzle each serving with about 2 1/2 Tbsp pan juices.

This is definitely a keeper! Even though I had to skip the red and green bell peppers, the salmon still tasted juicy and the juice is fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing! :)
