In this 20-minute, one-skillet dish, salmon fillets are cooked right in the full-flavored, spicy, tomato-based sauce.
Center-cut salmon fillets deliver weeknight ease with vibrant flavor in this recipe inspired by the Sephardic dish chraimeh, fish braised in a mildly spicy tomato sauce. The name comes from the word for thief and refers to the way the spice comes at the end of the sauce, sneaking up on the diner. We tailored ours to work with pantry staples and scaled down the amount of garlic typically used. Whole cumin and coriander, paprika, jalapeño and scallions rounded out our aromatics.
