Simple Salmon

Ah, seafood. Fish contains the omega-3 fatty acids (which are found in salmon), potassium, and only a small amount of sodium. And it's these ingredients that help keep your blood pressure in check during the ups and downs in life.
What's more, when you include heart-healthy vinegar, garlic, onions, and olive oil with fish, as in this fish recipe, you'll be on track to keeping a healthy heart.
I love this recipe because it's easy to make. It's simple as that. It's keeping it real. And these are the ingredients that help keep me petite--size 4 and 122 pounds--and healthy. Vinegar Bon Appetit!
P.S. Enjoying a 3 1/2 ounce serving of Simple Salmon with vegetables is the right road to allowing ample room to savor a plain but scrumptious dallop of French vanilla ice cream drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Remember, fine food is like a fine friend.
Simple Salmon

6 filets, 6 ounces each 2 ounces olive oil
1 tomato, peeled, seeded, and diced 2 ounces red wine vinegar
4 ounces yellow onion, sliced 2 ounces dry red wine
2 ounces carrots, sliced 2 bay leaves
1 lemon, sliced into rounds 3 fresh thyme sprigs
2 cloves garlic, sliced 4 fresh tarragon leaves
8 ounces vegetable broth salt and pepper to taste

Place the 6 salmon filets in an oven-proof glass pan. Add all the other ingredients. Marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator. In the ssame glass pan, cover salmon loosely with a piece of foil and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. When salmon is done, remove to a service plate.
