Salmon w/ Peach & Tomato Compote

One thing I love about summertime is the Farmer’s Market. During my last visit to the farmers market, I got these delicious heirloom tomatoes and Palisade Peaches (some of the best peaches in Colorado!). I knew I had to make something delicious with them. If you have never eaten an heirloom tomato, I highly suggest that you get on it! They are so delicious and not to mention super cool looking! I love just looking at all the different heirloom tomatoes in the bunch.

This recipe is great for summertime because the tomatoes and peaches are in season and so delicious. Hurry and get some of your own before summer is over! The sweet peaches mixed with the sweet and tangy tomatoes make a great topping for salmon. What makes this even better? It is super healthy too!

    You know, you’ve inspired me to buy some heirloom tomatoes on my next trip to the market. I stubbornly avoided buying any tomatoes this season because I’ve been growing my own, but they are not heirlooms. You’re right about how cool the heirlooms look. My neighbor is inundating me with peaches from her trips to the “you-pick” farms, so I have no excuse not to try your recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  9. This looks great! I was so sad last weekend when a sudden downpour arrived just as I was heading out to buy – heirloom tomatoes and peaches – at the farmers’ market! Hopefully the weather will be better this weekend and then I might be able to try this recipe out!

    Hello –
    This recipe looks great! It appears to be missing the quantities for onion and thyme- can you let me know what quantities to use?


  17. I’m sorry, not sure where you are looking? This recipe doesn’t include onion or thyme.

    It’s in your instructions…

    3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft (about 5 minutes).
