  • Oven safe deep skillet


  • 1 lb salmon filler cut into big pieces
  • 3 tbsp olive oil plus more for drizzling
  • 1 whole red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 whole red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or less
  • 15 oz. can whole tomatoes with their juices crushed by hand
  • 15 oz. can dice tomatoes with jalapenos with their juices
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter


  • Preheat oven at 400 degrees F.
  • Place the salmon fish fillets on a plate and season them on all sides with salt and pepper. Then set aside.
  • Pour the can of whole tomatoes in a medium bowl and crush them with your hands and then combine the can of diced tomatoes with jalapenos with their juices. Then set aside.
  • Use an oven safe deep skillet over medium heat. Heat the olive oil till it simmers, then add the onion and garlic. Stir fry for about 2 minutes then add paprika, turmeric, cayenne, cumin, salt and pepper and cook for an additional 1 minute.
  • Add the bell pepper and continue cooking until the vegetables are tender for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the mixture of tomatoes, season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cover and bring to boil. Then reduce the heat to medium-low to maintain a moderate simmer. Partially cover the skillet and cook for about 15 minutes, or until the veggies are softened and the liquid has mostly evaporated or reduced.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and add the vinegar and tablespoon of butter. Add the seasoned salmon fillets and partially submerge in the sauce, leaving space between the pieces. Pour a small amount of sauce over each fillet.
  • Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the fillets reach 145 to 150 degrees F.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and serve with brown bread wheat dinner rolls and a glass of your favorite red wine.
