We had this for dinner earlier this week, it was quick, simple and delicious and full of wonderful nutrients for the brain.
Salmon is loaded with Omega 3's which help to strengthen the synapses in your brain related to memory, and tomatoes are an easy source of brain protecting carotenoids. Served with a delicious portion of steamed broccoli which is packed with antioxidants, including vitamin C and beta-carotene, and essential to keep your brain in good health.
4 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
Freshly ground black pepper
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 small garlic clove, smashed
1/2 a lemon, thinly sliced
3 fresh thyme sprigs
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Step 1 Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Step 2 Place the salmon in an oven proof skillet, then season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In a bowl, stir together the tomatoes, garlic, lemon slices, thyme sprigs, oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over and around the salmon. Bake until the salmon is just cooked through and the tomatoes are slightly wilted, 12 to 15 minutes.
