Salmon Tomato Stew

When I was in high school, my mom worked as the education director at our synagogue. This meant there were some Friday nights she was at services with the religious school kids and I was charged with preparing our Shabbat dinner. 
This was also around the time when I took an interest in cooking and remember this being the first dish I created from my own imagination. I just thought "hey, that could work!" and work it did.
I mean, really, can you go wrong with onions softened and mixed with rich tomatoes and then simmered with fresh salmon? I know, right? It did take me some time to find the right herbs to mix in, but now, it's a solid dish.
I don't make this simple, yet rich, dish enough. Making it last week for Shabbat dinner brought back some good memories of those first cooking experiments in the kitchen. It also made high school seem eons ago....

This does sound like a great mix. I like some strong flavors to go with salmon!

Sounds and looks fabulous. My mom had to move away to complete her college degree when I was in high school - so I took on cooking duties. So many misfires - but a lot of good ones too.

I love salmon! I need to find a good source for buying wild caught. Why can't Whole Foods be closer? I love how simple and hearty this looks. Thank you for joining me this week!

Oh heavens this sounds incredible! And I bet you could substitute other fish (since I have fresh from the gulf fish available to me- maybe red snapper?). Can't wait to try this, thank you so much for your wonderful imagination and sharing it.

Another great recipe I can do. This looks so YUM! Yesterday at The Huntsman we had the best best best blackened salmon sandwich. It was so goooooooooood!

I am soooooo glad I am getting care at The Huntsman now, sooooo glad. Thanks for the encouraging words, my friend.
