Baked Salmon with creamy-corn/tomato sauce (the RECIPE!)

Clearly, all, Danielle needs to get her groove back. And when I say that, I mean back into the groove of writing, and posting recipes every week.

Last week, I promised you this baked salmon delight. This one was fun to make, because I decided to play with colors.

When it comes to natural foods, having color on your plate is a good thing. Here is an example of a good article on the subject. 

For this salmon, here is breakdown of what you will need. This recipe feeds four:

- 1 pound salmon (skin off or on)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- dash of salt and pepper
- 1 small carton baby tomatoes
- 1 can of corn
- 4 oz Greek yogurt
- Parsley, to taste

Sauce with a yellow twist. 
-Preheat over to 350
-Mix your olive oil and salt/pepper in a bowl. Use a brush to spread the substance evenly over the salmon. Let it sit while you prep the sauce

- First, user kitchen scissors to cut each baby tomato in half.
- Put a sauce pan on simmer, and add the Greek yogurt. Let it sit for 2 minutes.
- Drain the can of corn. Add the corn to the pan. Let it sit for 2 minutes.
- Add the parsley and the tomatoes. Let it sit for 2 minutes.
- By this time, your oven should be preheated. Pour the sauce on top of your salmon.
- Let it all bake together for 20 minutes, and you've got yourself a delicious main course. It's that easy!

Potatoes, to the right. 
While potatoes aren't the healthiest option, I made some healthier cheesy ones for the side. To do this, I halved 12 baby red potatoes, topped them with a little seasoned salt and fat free cheese, and threw them in the oven for 40 minutes at 350. The cheese comes out crunchy, but it tastes good. Feel free to throw it on afterwards, if you wish.

Thank you all for being awesome and patient while I transitioned from state-to-state! This week, you can expect a chicken dish and some desserts.

Happy eating (and reading)!
