While salmon is associated mainly with Scotland, Norway and other northern countries in Europe, Italians love their salmon too. So I thought I would share with you a Mediterranean recipe featuring this very popular fish. Get ready to be amazed by the simplicity of this dish, and later surprised by its taste.

Ingredients

3 medium large fillets fresh salmon
a great quality olive oil (you can choose one here)
8 cherry tomatoes
1 jar tomato sauce
4 medium garlic cloves
salt and pepper to taste
thyme fresh or dry

Tips

I suggest serving this with oven roasted potatoes, but it will also pair well with a medley of vegetables. if you opt for the latter, make sure to drizzle a great quality balsamic vinegar like this one. If you want to start your lunch or dinner with pasta, we suggest boiling 70 grams linguine per person and topping them with one or two spoons cherry tomatoes sauce from your salmon casserole. Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle some pecorino cheese or parmesan on top. If you do this make sure to double the amount of cherry tomatoes and tomato sauce you use for the salmon recipe.
