    • 6 cloves garlic, minced (1 tablespoon minced)
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

    • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley

  • 4 In the same skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add salmon; cook for 4 to 6 minutes per ½-inch thickness of salmon or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once. Serve salmon over vegetable mixture. If desired, garnish with fresh thyme.
