Would the roasted red peppers and marinara sauce not overpower the salmon completely. Looks divine on picture. Is marinara similar to bolognaise sauce as I have never seen a jar here on the shelves in Ireland?
What we call marinara sauce is really just a tomato sauce like you would make for Spaghetti… carmelized onions and Garlic, thyme, oregano, basil, and then fresh tomatoes or canned tomatoes with tomato paste..
