|Italian Salmon-Stuffed Tomatoes
1 TBS Italian Salt Packed Capers
1 pound boneless, skinless salmon
3.5 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1 TBS chopped Italian Parsley
1 tsp finely chopped garlic
2 TBS fine breadcrumbs
sea salt & fresh ground pepper
Two large, ripe tomatoes
Rinse and drain capers and chop finely. Dice salmon and toss in a bowl with 2.5 TBS olive oil, parsley, garlic, capers, 1 TBS breadcrumbs, pinches of salt and several grindings of pepper.
Cut tomatoes in half horizontally, scooping out all the seeds and the center (reserve tomato pulp for another dish). Dry inside of tomatoes with a paper towel and gently fill each tomato half with salmon mixture. Sprinkle tops with remaining breadcrumbs and drizzle with remaining TBS of olive oil.
Place tomatoes in an oiled roasting pan and roast in the top of a 400 degree oven for 35 minutes, or until stuffing has formed a light golden crust. Cool slightly before serving or at room temperature. ĐAdapted from Marcella Hazan
