I found this recipe in the back of a May 2009 issue of Reader's Digest and made it for dinner last night and it was wonderful! The polenta and tomato sauce give the salmon a definite Mediterrean feel.I didn't have any Italian seasoning, so I substituted 1/2 t. of dried oregano instead.I served it with a side of steamed asparagus and a nice pinot grigio.
