Salmon With Tomato Salsa

grilled salmon with asparagusThis recipe is the perfect quick and easy meal. It has a rich, buttery flavor – with very little added fat. When baking the salmon, always sear the fish to lock the pores and keep nutrients and juices inside while baking. Feel free to play around with this recipe, including grilling the salmon instead of baking it, alternating the salmon with another type of fish, and including additional seasonings of your choice.

This dish can be served hot or cold – after baking, just refrigerate until cool.
