Salmon Baked in Foil
--------------------
4 (5 ounces each) salmon fillets
2 teaspoons olive oil plus 2 tablespoons
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tomatoes, chopped, or 1 (14-ounce) can chopped tomatoes, drained
2 chopped shallots
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Sprinkle salmon with 2 teaspoons olive oil, salt, and pepper. Stir the
tomatoes, shallots, 2 tablespoons of oil, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, salt
and pepper in a medium bowl to blend.

Place a salmon fillet, oiled side down, atop a sheet of foil. Wrap the ends
of the foil to form a spiral shape. Spoon the tomato mixture over the
salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the fish and tomato mixture,
covering completely; seal the packets closed. Place the foil packet on a
heavy large baking sheet. Repeat until all of the salmon have been
individually wrapped in foil and placed on the baking sheet. Bake until the
salmon is just cooked through, about 25 minutes. Using a large metal
spatula, transfer the foil packets to plates and serve.

Comments:
- Try adding capers. They might add what some of you are missing.
- The only thing I changed was replacing the oregano with fresh basil.
- I added garlic, capers and a little bit of red chili flakes for a bit of
  heat.
- Used yellow onion and added a little diced zucchini and garlic.
