Roasting the tomatoes imbues them with flavor that's a delicious match for the rich broiled salmon. Garnish fish with a sprig of oregano.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Arrange tomatoes, onion, and garlic in an even layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Broil 8 minutes; stir gently. Broil an additional 5 minutes or until vegetables begin to blacken at the edges.

Step 3

Place tomato mixture and tomato paste in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Place tomato mixture in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in broth; bring to a simmer. Cook 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Strain mixture through a sieve into a large bowl; discard solids. Return tomato mixture to saucepan over medium heat.

Step 4

Combine 2 tablespoons water and cornstarch in a small bowl. Stir cornstarch mixture into tomato mixture. Increase heat to medium-high; bring tomato mixture to a boil. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Step 5

Place fish on a broiler pan lightly coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with 1/8 teaspoon salt. Broil 6 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

Step 6

Place about 1/4 cup tomato mixture on each of 4 deep plates; top each with 1 salmon fillet. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon basil. Garnish with coarsely ground black pepper, if desired.

super tasty! i didn't strain the sauce either and i broiled the salmon for 5 minutes, but it all turned out spectacular. The presentation is beautiful, and the flavors are clean and bold. i made a mango tomato salad with curry dressing and breadsticks for the sides, and it was a perfect summer meal!
