Delicious. I used regular tomatoes plus a few baby heirlooms that I had left over to add a little color.

Fast, easy, absolutely fabulous taste. Make sure you use the cumin. It scents the salmon and the tomato-basil relish. Fresh basil is a must. Serve with salad or plain white rice. Very yummy. I finally signed on to just to rate this recipe.

The salmon turned out was flavourful. Mine took much longer to cook than directed, but thay may be due to the thickness of the salmon. I may make it again in the future, but first I have a wack of other recipes to try out first.
