1 large tomato finely chopped
1 can of Royal Red Salmon
A touch of black pepper

set it aside.


Caramalize onions well to a reddish brown color in oil on medium high

Add finely sliced tomatoes to it and continue to cook them for about 10 minutes on medium medium high.

At this time onions, tomatoes and the oil forms a nice mixture

Add broken up salmon and mix it well.

Cook on medium for 5 minutes.

Add a table spoon of soy sauce.

Add a tea spoon of parsley paste or fresh parsley

Cook on low/medium for about 10 minutes.
