15 minute meal from a friend who got this from the grocery store...I cook this for friends all the time. Its so easy!

- Preheat large saute pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Combine tomatoes and mayonnaise in medium bowl.
- Coat both sides of salmon, using tongs, with tomato mixture and place in saute pan. Add remaining tomato mixture to pan and cover. Cook 3-5min until temperature reaches 145°F Cook time will vary depending on the thickness of the fillets. Serve.
- Spinach Wild Rice. (I usually use 90 sec Uncle Ben's rice).
- Place spinach and butter in microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on HIGH 3 minutes.
- Stir in rice and microwave 4 more minutes.
- Let stand 2 minutes, sprinkle with cheese, if using, and serve.
I just cooked this for two days at Publix, which is the grocery store it came from. I did not drain the tomotoes and I would recommend upping the cheese to 3 tbs. and adding salt and pepper to the spinach and rice dish (I used Birds Eye rice). I used coho salmon, wild and never frozen. The customers loved this dish and were buying the ingredients to "make it tonight". Good to see it posted here.
