Salmon With Roasted Grapes and Thyme

Serve oven-baked salmon with a tasty-yet-unexpected accompaniment: roasted grapes.

A few weeks back I posted a curried quinoa salad recipe. Over the winter I ate that salad as a main dish or lunch but recently I decided to pair it with a protein for a new dinner option. I decided to use salmon because it cooks up in the oven in no time and I don't have to fuss over it. I love topping fish with roasted tomatoes but didn't like the idea of the tomatoes with the curried quinoa so I opted for grapes which act similarly to tomatoes in many recipes. The sweet roasted grapes paired with savory thyme was a delicious addition to my already tasty grain salad.

Salmon With Roasted Grapes and Thyme

Serves 4
4 5-ounce salmon filets
1/2 pound red grapes, stems removed
2 cloves garlic, sliced
3 springs fresh thyme, leaves removed

Preheat oven to 400.

Toss grapes with 1 tablespoon olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Roast in an oven safe dish for 20 minutes or until slightly browned.

Arrange salmon filets on a baking dish. Drizzle with remaining olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 10-12 minutes or until desired doneness.

Top salmon with grapes.
