This savoury dish is very popular in Andalusia, Spain. You can use red pepper flakes (to your taste) in place of the hot pepper and any firm whitefish can be a substitute for the salmon. Great with rice and a green vegetable.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs salmon steaks
- 4 tablespoons oil
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 small hot pepper, finely chopped
- 1 (19 ounce) can tomatoes
- 4 tablespoons chopped parsley
- 1⁄2 cup dry white wine
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
- In a medium sized frying pan, heat oil and saute onions, garlic& peppers over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
- Add remaining ingredients (except fish), bring to a boil, then lower heat& simmer for 5 minutes.
- Place the fish into a greased medium sized casserole dish.
- Pour the tomato mixture over the fish& bake, uncovered, in a preheated 350F oven for 30 minutes.
This was so delicious and so easy to make. I also used slices of salmon fillet, my family don't particularly like the bones. I didn't use the hot pepper 'cos we're not too crazy about spicy food, but I did add some cayenne pepper instead.
Last week whole sides of frozen salmon fillet was on sale in my local supermarket, so I bought tons (okay, only 3, but total weight was over 10 pounds). This recipe is perfect for salmon fillet, even though it calls for salmon steaks. I cut up the salmon into individual portions and followed the instructions exactly. I'm on one of those food combining diets, so I left out the white wine but added just a dash of white wine vinegar instead (just a little bit, not enough to change the taste of the dish). Super yummy, and leftovers for lunch today (lucky me)!
This was the best salmon I've ever had. The flavor was amazing!! I broiled it for about 5 minutes on low because after 30 mins it still wasn't cooked through. I felt like I was at a restaurant. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE!!
