If you are also looking for a different way to cook your salmon, then here it is! This was actually kind of experimental, inspired by the Spinach Quiche recipe from my previous post, the main difference is, yes you guess it, the salmon and then I thought of adding some cherry tomatoes on top which turned out to be a really good idea  because the sweetness from the cherry tomatoes gave the dish some contrast.
