    Salmon is quick-cooking and full of omega-3 fatty acids. This Mediterranean recipe adds so much flavor to the fish with olives, capers, zucchini and tomatoes.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1/2 cup vegetable mixture)

Ingredients

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons capers, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (2 1/4-ounce) can sliced ripe Kalamata olives, drained

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. Sprinkle salt and pepper over both sides of fish. Place fish in a single layer in an 11- x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine tomatoes and remaining ingredients in a bowl; spoon mixture over fish. Bake at 425° for 22 minutes.

Believe it or not, I had never had a Kalamata olive or capers before this and LOVE them both.  Both add a zest and a zing to this marvelously healthful recipe.

ENJOY!
