Salmon Steaks with Roasted Grape Tomatoes

Salmon with Roasted Tomatoes

I made this salmon dish over the summer, but for some reason I forgot to post it. It is really simple and easy to make, but absolutely delicious. I know this is a summer dish, but you can make any time of the year. I used an outside grill, but you can cook using an indoor grill or bake the salmon steaks, it will be delicious whichever way you choose!

Buen provecho!

(2 servings)

  • 2 salmon steaks
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cups of grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons capers
  • Salt and pepper


  1. For the tomatoes: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In a medium bowl add the tomatoes, garlic cloves, olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper.
  2. In a baking dish, place the tomatoes and garlic cloves, ensuring they are in just 1 layer. Roast for about 30 minutes, add the basil and capers, then stir well. Set aside.
  3. To cook the salmon: Coat the salmon steaks lightly with oil, season with salt and pepper,
  4. Grill fish to medium rare, about 3 minutes per side. (Fish should be well colored on the outside and barely translucent at the center.

Looks great! Of course here in Florida we use our grill all year. I have just the place to get some nice looking grape tomatoes too. They look a lot better than the other tomatoes.

Erica, this is a beautiful dish! I’m loving all those fresh and light flavors. I could really go for some of this right now. (I’ve been eating way to many cookies this week).
