4 skinless salmon fillets - (6 oz ea)
Zov's Warm Spice Mixture (see recipe)
3 diced, ripe tomatoes
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro or basil
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 minced garlic cloves
1/2 large peeled & finely diced red onion

In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes and cilantro; set aside.
Heat nonstick grill pan on high heat until very hot.
Sear salmon, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
If salmon needs additional cooking, place in a 350degree oven until just cooked through.
No oil is necessary when sauteing in a nonstick frying pan because of the natural oils in the salmon, but if you don't use a nonstick pan, saute salmon in 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
In a medium skillet, make Charmoula Sauce by heating 1 tablespoon ofolive
oil on medium-high heat.
Add garlic and onion and cook, shaking handle of skillet to toss ingredients, until onion softens, about 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in tomato mixture.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Presentation: Place salmon on serving platter.
Top with the Charmoula Sauce and serve.
