Oh, ye of little faith Salmon Bake

About two weeks ago Stacey over at Stacey Snacks featured a salmon bake with bread & tomatoes that I thought would be a great new way to eat salmon. When I told Matt I was going add it to the weekly menu he turned up his nose & said he was very dubious of it. Every time I mentioned it his reaction was "I don't know about that." Still I went ahead with making it since I trusted Stacey wouldn't steer us wrong. Then, I found some beautiful late season orange cherry tomatoes at the farmer's market that sealed the deal for making this dish.
Salmon, Bread & Tomato Bake
I pretty much stuck to the recipe exactly except I left out the capers (the ones in my fridge were best before Nov. 2007!). I didn't want to buy a whole loaf of ciabatta to use just a few slices so I bought a ciabatta roll & it was the perfect size. The dish was super easy to put together & smelled great baking.

And the result? Every little bit of the dish was eaten up & Matt said he would definitely have it again. We would change one thing next time though & toast the bread separately then mix it into the roasted salmon & tomatoes, that way it would be crisp all over instead of having mushy bits which we think would be better.

You mean Matt doesn't trust me by now????? boo hiss!

I liked the crispy croutons, and next time, the capers add such a nice kick!
Glad you liked it.

I love bread salads. Saw this at Stacy snacks, glad to hear it was good. (And, I might guess that our capers are even olde.r

kat... sometimes "sticking to our guns" changes our perceptions and opens our taste for new things. I liked how you altered this recipe to fit your needs ~ after all ~ cooking is an interpretation of the ingredients.

I definitely give this a try!

Looks delicious! Glad you didn't use the capers in the fridge, LOL!

I made Jamie Oliver's Chicken Caesar, and it was a similar thing (you bake the bread in with the chicken) so I started the bread with the chix and then toasted it up separately after to have the flavor. Not sure the salmon will cook that long, but thought I would mention it :)

Mmmnn! Love salmon but the husband doesn't.

Oh, I'm glad you made this! I've got it bookmarked, but Hubby was skeptical. Now I've got proof that more than 1 person thinks it's worth making :)

Now I've bookmarked it!

Oh, it's too bad about the capers...their briny selves would have been perfect here (dill too)!
