Salmon w/ Garlic & Basil Tomatoes
Sep 182015
 

Today’s recipe is my favorite way to prepare salmon! Favorite ever! This one is so delicious, I may or may not have had salmon for breakfast once or twice! #sorrynotsorry As a matter of fact, the Dr. Perricone diet (not that I’m following any diet at the moment!) advocates having salmon for breakfast regularly as a healthy, nutritious and satisfying way to start the day! Anyway, I usually eat this meal for lunch and dinner! And it is sooo delicious to me, even though I don’t consider myself a fish-person (not entirely sure what that means!)

With 2 kids, this blog and so many other daily chores & responsibilities, sometimes it’s hard to find the time to prepare healthy meals and recipes! However, the salmon I’m about to share with you is something I can make in advance! I usually prepare a big (and I mean BIG) filet of this stuff and leave it in the fridge. And for the next few days, I have my protein all prepared and ready to heat! I can just throw a side of veggies next to it and dinner is done! #justlikethat

I actually had a salmon dish like this at a restaurant in Italy a while ago, and I loved it so much, I knew I had to recreate it at home! It was really easy. Between the garlic and basil and all the chopped tomatoes, this salmon is super flavorful and still totally healthy!

4. Place the salmon in the broiler under high heat for ~10-15 minutes, until the salmon is fully cooked internally. You may have to use a thermometer and adjust the times, according to your oven. Simply serve this alongside a healthy veggie, like these broccoli florets sauteed in olive oil & garlic. And just like that, you have a healthy, easy weeknight meal!
