Fresh baked salmon filet with vegetables

The recipe for my blog is a baked salmon with vegetables and salad dish, which is very similar to the fish dishes my grandmother made in Brazil.  Beef and chicken are very popular for most dishes in Brazil, but my grandmother loved to bake fish with vegetables because she loved the taste and thought it was better for the family’s diet.  This was a dish we usually ate during the week for our family dinner or sometimes on the weekends when we were all together.  My grandmother also loved to baked fish with lots of vegetables because she said all of the juices from the vegetables soak into the fish and make it more delicious.  This dish goes great with almost any bottle of dry red wine.

2 lb salmon filet
½ cup of fresh chopped garlic
2 teaspoons of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of salt
2 chopped white onions
½  cup of broccoli
½ cup of cherry tomatoes
