Ingredients which define Mediterranean cooking – basil, oregano, rosemary, garlic, fennel and tomatoes – add vibrant flavor to mild salmon.
Mix seasonings in medium bowl. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons over salmon. Reserve remaining seasoning mixture in bowl. Set aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Place salmon, skin-side up, in skillet. Cook 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, add sugar and remaining 2 teaspoons oil to reserved seasoning mixture; mix well. Add fennel and tomatoes; toss to coat. Turn salmon fillets. Place fennel mixture around salmon in skillet. Cook 6 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve with lemon wedges.
To prepare in a cast-iron skillet: Cook salmon, skin-side up, in 12-inch cast iron skillet on medium heat 3 minutes. Continue as directed. (Not recommended if cooking on a glass top range.)
