Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Season the salmon steaks with olive oil and salt and pepper. In a sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. When the pan is smoking hot, sear the salmon for 2 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat and place in the oven. Roast for 8 to 10 minutes.
In a sauté pan, heat the remaining olive oil. When the pan is hot, sauté the shallots for 30 seconds. Add the garlic cloves, broccoli, and tomatoes. Sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Stir in the chopped herbs. Bring the mixture up to a boil and remove from the heat. Spoon the broccoli and tomatoes onto the plate. Place the salmon steak in the center of the sauce. Garnish with chives and parsley.
