Tomato-Basil Salmon

20 Min

Omega-3 fatty acids are considered 'good fats' and are essential to good health. Salmon is high in this type of fat, which studies have shown can lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Since our bodies can't make Omega-3 fatty acids, be sure to include foods that contain it in your meal plan, like this Tomato-Basil Salmon - your heart will thank you for it!

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 (4-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth*
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Stir in the tomato, salt, and pepper; cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes.

  2. Add the salmon to the skillet then the wine and chicken broth. Cover, and cook for 7 minutes.

  3. Uncover the skillet, stir in the basil and tomato paste, and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the sauce is reduced and the salmon flakes easily with a fork. Serve the salmon topped with sauce.
