Happy New Year Guys!!
I know it’s almost the end of January, and I am wishing you all so late. I was in India on a long vacation and came back last week.
It was truly an amazing trip. And the most beautiful part of our trip was the Christmas celebrations. We celebrated Christmas at Ganapatipule, India. It is one of the most beautiful places on the western shore of India. In Sahaja Yoga, this place has special importance. Thousands of yogis (Sahaja Yoga practitioners) from around the world gather here to attend the International Sahaja yoga Christmas Seminar every year. And last year, we were fortunate to be part of the event!
Another thing I loved about my trip to India this time was getting away for one and a half months from the winter here in upstate New York. I can’t write enough about this trip. I guess it will need a separate article.
Let’s get back to our recipe for now – Salmon in tomato sauce.
Salmon in Tomato Sauce
Use fresh tomatoes to prepare the base of the sauce. Just cook them with fresh garlic. When you get it to a sauce-like consistency, add salmon fillets and cook until well done. Salt, pepper, and paprika are enough to season this dish–so convenient, right?.
Serve warm on the side of pasta or pasta salad or plain rice. It even goes well with plain creamy grits.
- Salmon – Use organic fish whenever possible. Also, always buy fresh or frozen seafood from sources that follow the standards of sustainable farming.
- If you are using frozen salmon, then thaw it well in advance before making the dish. I mean that you allow enough time for the fish to thaw naturally.
- Use fresh tomatoes instead of canned ones. Though canned tomatoes are very convenient to use, fresh tomatoes give a very nice aroma and taste to the dish.

Simple & delicious! I recently made tomato paste from the last of my summer tomatoes, used some with a hit of white wine to water it down.
This is a delicious recipe, but found it a bit lacking in flavor. Maybe next time I might try it with Italian seasonings. I served it over soybean spaghetti noodles and zucchini. I would make it again.
