Baked salmon in tomato basil sauce and a quick, easy and good-for-you dish. Started on the stovetop and finished in the oven, this dish is on the table in 30 minutes.
This is one of my favorite fish dishes that I make on a regular basis. I usually make it with swordfish, but I’m changing it up because February American is heart health month and salmon is the best heart healthy fish there is.
In addition to salmon, the other heart healthy ingredient in this dish is Hunt’s diced tomatoes. I am thankful that I am not closely related to anyone with a heart related condition, but I am very heart healthy conscious for myself and my husband and since I am responsible for our meals, I can contribute to our heart health by limiting sodium intake, eating a low fat diet and we both exercising regularly.
Hunt’s are a huge supporter of heart health and are donating $50,000 to the American Heart Association which something I really can stand behind.
Hunt’s diced tomatoes can be found in the canned vegetables aisle at Walmart. The garlic, onions and basil can be found in the fresh produce aisle. Before you head out to buy, have you heard of Ibotta?

It is so quick and easy to make this heart healthy dish. Since the salmon does not bake long, I start the sauce stovetop then transfer everything to a baking dish so the fish can bake in the delicious sauce.
This dish my go-to heart healthy dish. Tell me in the comments if you have a favorite healthy dish you like to make.
