Broiled Salmon with Cannellini Bean Purée and Tomato Vinaigrette   
Daily Dose
Sometimes the simplest dishes offer the greatest flavor. Salmon, the omega-3 superstar of this dish, is beautifully accompanied by a creamy, lemon-infused cannellini bean puree and a perfectly piquant vinaigrette. Packed with protein, fiber, lycopene and fatty acids, this tasty treasure is the perfect example of wellness on your plate.

Yield: Serves 4
1 clove garlic
1 15-ounce can (no salt) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley
1 tablespoon chopped mint
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
4 4-ounce pieces salmon filet
Peel the garlic, put it into a food processor and chop. Then add the beans and lemon juice and purée until smooth and creamy (you can add a little extra lemon juice, if needed, for desired consistency).

In a small bowl, combine the parsley, mint, oil, vinegar, mustard, and tomatoes.

Heat the broiler to high with the oven rack about four inches from the top. Place the salmon on a sheet pan and broil until the salmon is opaque throughout and the tops just start to brown, 5 to 8 minutes.

Serve the salmon over the bean purée and top with the vinaigrette.
