Roast Salmon with Tomatoes and Tarragon

Becky Luigart-Stayner
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 1/2 tablespoons topping)
These fillets are cooked skin side up to prevent them from drying out as they roast. Once they're cooked, the skin comes off easily, and the fillets can be flipped right side up and served with the chopped tomato.


  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped seeded peeled tomato (about 1 pound)
  • 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons coarsely chopped fresh or 3/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • Tarragon sprigs (optional)
