Recipe Fridays: Baked Salmon with a Fresh Tomato-Based Sauce

I love salmon, and this is one of my favorite recipes to make. It's a great dish to make for a celebratory dinner, a dinner party, or just a regular evening at home! I created it on my own (so you'll have to trust me that it's been delicious every single time I've made it), but I draw inspiration from one of my favorite cooking sites!

Ingredients (for 4 people):
4 salmon fillets
2 medium-sized tomatoes
1/3 of a medium-sized red onion
1 tbs olive oil
2-3 tbs honey mustard
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup white wine
1 tsp honey
1 lime
fresh parsley or cilantro
ground black pepper to taste
1/4 tsp salt
cumin/coriander (or both)
basil/oregano (or both)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Finely chop up the tomatoes and onions. In a bowl, mix the chopped tomatoes and onions, and add oil, vinegar, mustard, wine, and honey. Squeeze lime juice into the mix. Add the spices to taste. Place the salmon fillets on a greased baking sheet, and pour the sauce generously over the salmon fillets, so that it covers them evenly. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Add fresh chopped parsley/cilantro a couple minutes before taking the salmon out of the oven. The salmon should flake and have a tender pink color on the inside when it's ready.

Serve with sauteed vegetables and rice. Enjoy!
