Seared Salmon with Warm Roasted Cherry Tomato Salad
Cherry Tomato Salad
- 1 container (10.5-ounce) cherry tomatoes - or grape tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper - to taste
- 1 clove garlic - minced
- 1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar - to taste
- 2 teaspoons chopped parsley
- 1 tablespoon olive oil oil

Cherry Tomato Salad
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place cherry tomatoes on a baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and black pepper.
- Roast for 20 minutes or until blistered. Transfer to a bowl along with all the accumulated juices. Add the garlic, balsamic vinegar and parsley. Cover to keep warm.
- Heat oil in a nonstick skillet (or cast iron skillet) over medium-high heat.
- Season salmon with salt and black pepper. Place salmon in the skillet (top side down), reduce heat to medium and cook 5 to 6 minutes. Flip the salmon and cook 3 to 4 minutes on the other side. (If the fish is thick and you prefer it cooked all the way through, it may require some time in the oven. The salmon is cooked through when it easily flakes with a fork.)
