No, you aren’t on the wrong blog….I’m actually posting a fish recipe! It is true that I don’t really care to prepare fish but I know it is healthy and should incorporate it more often. Almost a month ago, my older brother had a heart attack. In honor of his recovery, I thought I would dig out some of my heart healthy recipes and post a few. This is one that has been around our house for over three years and it gets four smiley faces each time I make it.
Preheat oven to 425°
Place in a single layer in an 11 x 7 baking dish, coated with cooking spray
- 4 (6 oz) skinless salmon fillets (OK, reality check here….I don’t take the skin off as the salmon I buy comes with skin on one side. AND I just fill the pan so often I have 6 fillets)
Sprinkle over both sides of the fish:
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (confession….I didn’t measure either salt or pepper)
Combine in a bowl and then spoon over fish:
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/2 cup finely chopped zucchini
- 2 Tablespoons capers (I used these the first time I made the recipe and haven’t since as capers are not on my regular shopping list!)
- 1 Tablespoon of olive oil
Bake for 22 minutes.
We usually serve this with a big salad and some bread; and then, because it is fish, I plan on popping popcorn later when I am starving before bed!
My handsome fella found this recipe for me back in 2010 after I had my own little heart incident (not near as life-threatening as my big brother last month though!). The recipe sheet I have says it was from a cnn.com health link. So big brother, try out this recipe. It is easy AND good for your heart. Love you!
