Low in saturated fat and high in omega-3 fatty acids, this tender entrée features a delicious, heart-healthy red wine sauce.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 sprigs fresh thyme
1 pound salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces (skin left on)
4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed with the flat of a knife
1/2 cup light red wine, such as Beaujolais or Pinot Noir
1 tablespoon honey
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Preheat oven to 350°. In the bottom of a glass or ceramic baking dish, drizzle olive oil and scatter thyme sprigs. Lay salmon on top of the thyme, skin side up. Arrange garlic cloves around salmon.
In a small bowl, whisk together red wine and honey and pour over salmon.
Bake 15-20 minutes and remove from oven. Peel off salmon skin, if desired, and arrange fillets on a warm serving dish.
Pour dish juices into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce until syrupy, about 10 minutes. Season sauce with salt and black pepper, spoon over salmon, and serve.
