Oven Roasted Salmon with Saffron-Scented Heirloom Tomato Gravy

Don't let the long name fool you, this is an amazingly delicious, EASY weeknight dinner! Salmon is one of my go-to weeknight dinners as it cooks very quickly and is loaded with omega 3s. Here's everything you need:


4 salmon steaks (6-8 ounces each)
2 tbsp. of avocado oil
3 medium-sized heirloom tomatoes
1 small red onion
1/4C avocado oil
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
Scant 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. white sugar
2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper
~ 10 strands saffron


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
2. Coat salmon with avocado oil, salt and pepper
3. Place salmon in oven and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until just cooked through
4. Dice tomatoes and red onion into 1/4 inch pieces
5. Add avocado oil to a medium sauce pan over medium high heat and dump in red onion
6. Sautee onion until lightly translucent and add garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper
7. Add diced tomatoes and saffron and stir until evenly coated with spices
8. Cook over medium high heat for approximately 10-15 minutes, allowing the tomatoes to cook down completely
9. When it's time to serve, remove mixture from heat and blend with immersion blender
10. Plate salmon and top with sauce and lemon slices (optional) to serve!
