This easy 5-ingredient dish utilizes the classic combination of salmon and lemon for a flavorful entrée that’s ready in about 30 minutes. It is perfect for weeknights or if you’re in the mood from something that looks and tastes fancy but doesn’t require much effort. The grape tomatoes and shallot roast alongside the fish, becoming tender and sweet. For a pretty presentation, you can use a colorful mix of grape tomatoes. When the salmon flakes when pierced with a fork, that’s a good sign that it’s done. Serve this with a simple side salad drizzled with a lemon-infused dressing to complete the meal.
