Salmon Baked In Foil

From Giada De Laurentiis: Everyday Italian

3 tomatoes, chopped
2 shallots, chopped
2 Tbsp plus 2 tsp olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh oregano, or 3/4 tsp dried
1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh thyme, or 3/4 tsp dried
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
4 salmon fillets, about 5 ounces each

Preheat the oven to 400. In a medium bowl, stir in the tomatoes, shallots, 2 tablespoons of oil, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. In the center of each of four large sheets of aluminum foil, spoon 1/2 teaspoon of oil. Place 1 salmon fillet atop each sheet of foil and turn to coat with the oil. Sprinkle the salmon with the remaining salt and pepper. Spoon the tomato mixture over the salmon. Fold the sides of the foil over the fish and tomato mixture, covering completely, and seal the packets closed. Place the foil packets on a large, heavy baking sheet. Bake until salmon is just cooked through, about 25 minutes. Using a large metal spatula, transfer the foil packets to plates and serve.
