Ingredients:

6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
Six (5 to 6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 2 pounds)

1 and 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup (scant) small black olives

1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, torn if large

Directions:

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in each of 2 heavy large skillets.

Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper.

Add 3 fillets to each skillet and cook until almost cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.

Heat remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add chickpeas and all remaining ingredients except basil.
