3 medium zucchini, chopped
3 cloves garlic, pressed
6 Roma tomatoes, cut into 1/2" cubes
2 teaspoons Dr. Fuhrman's MatoZest, or other no-salt seasoning
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
8 ounces wild salmon, cut into 2-oz. portions and skin removed
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1 teaspoon coconut aminos
16 ounces fresh organic spinach or mixed field greens


To prepare vegetable salsa, heat 1/8 cup water in a large skillet, add zucchini and garlic and saute for 5 minutes, adding more water if needed, until zucchini is tender. Add the tomatoes and MatoZest and simmer uncovered over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until very little liquid remains. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the basil. Place mixture in a bowl and set aside.

In the same skillet, barely wilt the greens in a small amount of water. Remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine salmon with lemon juice, garlic and coconut aminos and marinate for 10 minutes. Place salmon pieces on a parchment-lined baking tray and season with black pepper. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until cooked through.

Serve on bed of wilted greens and top with the vegetable salsa and the remaining basil.

This was very good, only 2 of us so had more salsa than salmon but it was great as a side. Should have used more greens. Really great meal for the summer
