1 tablespoon Black peppercorns

4 ounce Margarine

Original recipe makes 6



Oven temp: 400F / 200C / Gas Mark 6

In a small bowl, stir together basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary and peppercorns. In spice grinder grind the mixture until it is fine (I dont do this, I just use ground pepper and mix the spices well). Transfer mixture to bowl and add flour and salt, mixing well.

Dredge salmon in the mixture, coating it well. Arrange salmon on greased cookie sheet, brush with the oil and roast in the middle of a preheated 400 oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until it is just cooked through.

Make the sauce: In a skillet combine the wine, tomatoes. lemon juice and shallot and boil the mixture until the liquid is reduced to about 2 tablespoons. Reduce the heat to moderately low and whisk in the butter, 1 bit at a time, lifting the skillet from the heat occasionally to let the mixture cool and adding each new bit before the previous one has melted completely. Sauce should be the consistency of thin hollandaise.

Divide the salmon among 6 heated plates and serve with the sauce.

This was totally delicious. We actually used it on salmon and tilapia and it was equally delicious. I would make this easy recipe time and time again.

This is really too sour. I remade the sauce using only a trace of lemon that was lef tin the pan and it improved it, but then the Italian spices overwhelm the salmon. I think I might try doing this again and modifying the spice coating as well.

I made this for my wife and myself tonight. The salmon ended up being pretty bland. The sauce was pretty tasty, but wasn't as tasty as I was expecting. The recipe is a little unclear though so someone else might be able to make it better than I did. I wasn't sure how much tomato to put in exactly. The recipe just says four??? What size? The recipe says to cover the salmon in the herbs really well, but if I made this again I'd only lightly sprinkle the herbs over the entire salmon. It's the sauce that really makes this recipe. It's pretty tasty, but maybe needs a little sugar. It could just be that the recipe is difficult to follow. Also, the salmon took twice as long to cook as the recipe said.
