Roasted Salmon with Tomatoes a la bruschetta style I call this recipe. It is a la bruschetta style because it reminds of the Italian dish bruschetta that is bread topped with a tomato and parsley mixture. It is quite good if you have the right type of bread of course!
My Roasted Salmon with Tomatoes recipe was created for the simple fact that I needed to consume more omega-3 fatty acids. My health has not been great for a few months now and I am determine at trying my best to eat healthier and juice more frequently.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids are found in certain types of fish like salmon for example. It is recommended to eat fish at least two to three times a week. Huh!!! I am not going to lie, but it is somewhat difficult for me to eat fish twice a week. I can certainly eat another type of seafood, but fish not quite sure of that. I think I would eat more fish if someone would prepare it for me. Those were the good old days when I was living at home and both of my parents were alive.
Finding a good fish recipe is not hard, finding certain ingredients can be hard. In the Caribbean fish or seafood recipes are very simple. But what is surprising is the type of fish or seafood islanders consume. We have to thank the companies that are willing to export their products to the Caribbean.
I guess because “Salmon are native to tributaries of the North Atlantic and Pacific Ocean it would explain why they are packaged in cans and sold elsewhere. Many species of salmon have been introduced into non-native environments such as the Great Lakes of North America and Patagonia in South America. Salmon are intensively produced in aquaculture in many parts of the world. 
Typically, salmon are anadromous: they are born in fresh water, migrate to the ocean, and then return to fresh water to reproduce. However, populations of several species are restricted to fresh water through their lives. Various species of salmon display anadromous life strategies while others display freshwater resident life strategies. Folklore has it that the fish return to the exact spot where they were born to spawn; tracking studies have shown this to be mostly true. A portion of a returning salmon run may stray and spawn in different freshwater systems. The percent of straying depends on the species of salmon. Homing behavior has been shown to depend on olfactory memory. 
Cooking Salmon is not difficult at all. I find that it is sometimes better to cook fresh with fresh herbs. I don’t remember what cooking show I was watching one day, the host said, fresh fish does not need much to taste great. You see, I disagree and agree with that statement. I disagree because I believe certain fish need some spice to taste delicious because the flesh is too blend. I agree because fresh fish only needs a little bit of lemon juice, salt and pepper and of course let’s not forget a good hot pepper sauce. Yummy! I am drooling just thinking about sitting by the beach and eating fresh grilled fish with a spicy sauce. Dream, dream, dream! How easy it is to let yourself go and imagine that you are someplace else, enjoying life and eating great food!
