Season both sides of the salmon steaks with salt and pepper.
Heat 2 tablespoons cooking oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Briefly fry the salmon in hot oil until lightly cooked, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from frying pan and set aside.
Add 1 tablespoon cooking oil to the frying pan and allow to get hot before adding the onion and garlic; cook and stir the onion and garlic in the hot oil until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir the diced tomatoes into the mixture and season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking until the moisture from the tomatoes makes a sauce, about 5 minutes more. Return the salmon to the frying pan and allow to simmer in the sauce until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes. Stir the beaten egg into the sauce and stir until well integrated; serve hot.
This was really tasty and very easy. The frying oil kept the salmon beautifully tender, and all the flavours went well together. Just what I was looking for in a quick salmon dish for dinner! However, I didn't really understand the addition of the egg at the end... It thickened up the sauce a bit, but that can be done just as well with a little longer cooking time. - 07 Jan 2015
