Salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for the heart and may even help protect against rheumatoid arthritis and other illnesses. Due to its fatty acids, salmon is great for your health and skin.
Be sure to buy wild salmon, as opposed to farm-raised, which can contain dangerous levels of the chemical PCB, a toxin that the Environmental Protection Agency calls a "probable human carcinogen." Arctic char is also a wonderful substitute for salmon.
Heat a nonstick skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to coat the pan evenly.
Season the salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. Place the fish, flesh side down, in the skillet and cook four minutes or until golden. Turn and cook an additional three minutes. Transfer the fish to a heated dish.
Add the remaining olive oil to the skillet and heat over medium heat. Add the shallots, tomato, and garlic, and sauté five minutes. Add the white wine and reduce by half. Add the lime juice and zest and heat through.
Divide the fish among four plates, pour the sauce over the top, add basil and serve immediately.
