Ingredients

  1. Check 1 1/2pounds salmon steaks, about 3/4 inch thick
  2. Check 2tablespoons all-purpose flour
  3. Check 2tablespoons olive oil
  4. Check kosher salt and black pepper
  5. Check 214 1/2-ounce cans diced tomatoes
  6. Check 2 garlic cloves, minced
  7. Check 2tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Directions

  1. Dredge the fish in the flour. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat until it shimmers. Add the fish and brown about 3 minutes on each side.
  2. Carefully lift the fish out of the skillet and set it aside on a platter; sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  3. Add the tomatoes and garlic to the skillet and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to low and return the fish to the pan. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until the fish flakes when tested with a fork or the tip of a knife.
  5. Remove the fish to a platter and cover loosely with foil to keep warm.
  6. Increase heat to high, add the basil, and reduce the sauce, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 3 minutes.
