Mediterranean Mondays would be nothing without bringing some attention to those delicious salty fruits from Greece. Yes, they are fruits. Just delicious fruits, which are marinated in olive oil and vinegar. Made from fully ripe olives, they are high in sodium, and rich in healthy fats and contain a natural antioxidant. Read more on LiveStrong about the benefits of Kalamata olives.
Salting fish is quite important when preparing it, however adding Kalamata olives really sets the tone for an easy Greek inspired dish. Last week my friends and I made and documented a Greek inspired quinoa salad, with some olive tapenade. This salmon dish was an excellent complement.
Here is what you need and how it was prepped.
Ingredients (Serves 4)
4 (5 ounce) salmon filets
2 large diced tomatoes
1/4 cup diced kalamata olives (about 15)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Organic Baby Spinach
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray with non-stick olive oil cooking spray or grease foil lightly with olive oil.
Arrange salmon fillets on foil-lined baking sheet. Brush fillets with olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Squeeze lemon over the filets.
Add tomatoes and kalamata olives on top of salmon filets.
Bake for 20-25 minutes
Once cooked, place each fish over a bed of baby spinach and enjoy
