What is great about growing cherry tomatoes is one plant turns out so much produce. When I am not out in the garden gobbling them up I am throwing them in my recipes. Cherry tomatoes have a sweeter flavor so they do well fresh or roasted in the oven. When the grocery store had wild caught salmon on sale, I bought a beautiful piece and knew my cherry tomatoes would make the perfect sweet accompaniment.
My love for this dish truly lies in how simple it is to prepare. And of course you only have to use one pan, so less dirty dishes. Score!
The layers of different vegetables are subtly roasted in a simple olive oil and herb flavoring which lets you highlight the terrific fresh wild salmon.
