"It isn't necessary to season the salmon itself, as the tomatoes, thyme, and garlic create such a flavorful sauce. Serve with rice or couscous." -CL Reader
2 cups cherry tomatoes
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
Combine first 6 ingredients in a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray; toss to coat tomatoes. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Add fish to pan. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve the tomato mixture over fish. Drizzle with lemon juice.
I have made this recipe several times and love it!! The tomatoes and salmon were an unexpected combination for me, but they work so well together in this recipe! It has become a frequent favorite in my kitchen.
