DIRECTIONS

  • In an ovenproof frying pan, saute onion and garlic in olive oil until translucent and tender.
  • Add red bell pepper, chopped tomatoes and cilantro, and continue sauteeing until everything is tender.
  • In the meantime, in a small bowl, add the canned diced tomatoes, paprikas, cumin, salt, pepper, and water. Mix well.
  • Add half this mixture to the pan, and cook for a few minutes more.
  • Sprinkle the salmon with a tbsp or so of the hot paprika/cayenne, and rub it in the salmon.
  • Add the salmon, skin side down, and cook for about 10min, until salmon looks cooked through about half the thickness.
  • On top of the salmon, add the rest of the tomato-spice mixture (now nearly all the salmon should be in sauce), and continue to cook the salmon for a few minutes more - total around 10minutes.
  • Pour lemon juice over the salmon, cover the pan with a lid, and cook till salmon is ready, about 5min.
  • Remove cover and place pan in oven, and broil for around 7 minutes.
  • Enjoy! (Don't forget to have a cup of ice water near).
