Notes about this recipe

    Delicious and truly foolproof. The recipe asks me to salt the salmon liberally, but one should use discretion when salting the salmon - my salmon was a bit salty, but the skin was nice and crispy - very delicious!

    I came here just for the "melting tomatoes" to serve with some crispy air fryer pork chops. I used a mix of red & yellow grape tomatoes and we both agreed - delicious! I scaled it back to 1/2 for the 2 of us but really should have made more .....we would have finished if off easily.

    Agree with everyone else. The sauce was delicious. I also liked making my salmon this way. New technique for me. My guests really liked it

    Wow, this sauce is so delicious! Even my young sometimes salmon-skeptical kids loved it. We ate this with Ina's mashed potatoes and it was the best dinner we've had in ages. Pure comfort food.

    I agree a delicious sauce. We made it with ivory Alaskan king salmon and it was superb. I used 50 year aged balsamic vinegar because the recipe called for good balsamic. I thought might be too strong but it was perfect

    Delicious! Depending on the size and shape of your salmon fillets, they may actually get completely cooked through, so check them early if you want them less done. The topping is also good with mint instead of basil. It would taste great with other fish, chicken, or vegetables as well.

    Simple and delicious way to cook salmon. The tomatoes and onions melt into a wonderful sauce. Definitely company-worthy!
