  • 2 cups canned tomatoes (one 15-ounce can)

  • 2 Tbs brown sugar

  • 2 Tbs lemon juice, freshly squeezed

  • 1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 medium onions

  • Place tomatoes, brown sugar, lemon juice, Tabasco sauce, and garlic in a small bowl. Break up tomatoes with a spoon; mix to combine all ingredients.

  • Place salmon steaks in an attractive oven-proof dish. Layer onion rings on top of salmon. Pour tomato sauce on and around fish and onions.
  • Bake fish for 15 minutes or until it is opaque in the middle.
