  2. Cherry tomatoes: 2 cups, halved
  3. Kalamata olives: 1 cup, pitted and halved
  4. Garlic: 4 cloves, minced
  5. Red onion: 1 small, thinly sliced
  6. Olive oil: 1/4 cup (60ml)
  7. Lemon juice: 2 tablespoons
  8. Dried oregano: 1 teaspoon
  9. Dried thyme: 1 teaspoon
  10. Salt and black pepper: To taste
  11. Fresh parsley: 2 tablespoons, chopped (for garnish)
  12. Lemon wedges: For serving


Combine the ingredients:

  • Pitted Kalamata olives, minced garlic, sliced red onion, and split cherry tomatoes should all be combined in a mixing dish.
  • Include the seasonings: Pour in some lemon juice and olive oil. Add salt, black pepper, dried thyme, and dried oregano. Mix everything until well incorporated.

Step 2: Get the Fish Ready

  • Preheat the oven: Set oven temperature to 400°F, or 200°C.
  • Adjust the fish’s seasoning: Using paper towels, pat dry the salmon fillets. Add black pepper and salt on both sides.

Step 3 Put Together and Bake

  • Arrange the baking dish in layers: In a baking dish, spread half of the tomato and olive mixture on the bottom.
  • Add the fish: Place the seasoned fish fillets on top of the tomato and olive mixture.
  • Spread remaining mixture on top: Cover the fish fillets with the remaining tomato and olive mixture.
  • Bake: Bake the fish for 20 to 25 minutes in a preheated oven, or until it is cooked through and flakes readily with a fork.

Step 4: Present

  • After baking, take out the baking dish and garnish it. Serve with lemon wedges on the side and garnish with freshly cut parsley.
  • Serve hot: Present the baked fish hot, accompanied with cherry tomatoes and olives, along with your preferred side dishes, such quinoa, steaming rice, or a crisp salad.

TIPS for the Ideal Baked Fish

  • Make use of fresh fish: For this dish, fresh fish fillets work best since they will be soft and tasty.
  • Avoid over baking: Watch the fish closely in the oven to avoid overcooking it. When the fish is done, it should be opaque and flake readily with a fork.
  • Personalise the herbs: For extra taste, feel free to add fresh herbs like dill, basil, or rosemary.


A tasty, nutritious, and easy dish to make for any meal is baked fish with cherry tomatoes and olives. This dish calls for luscious tomatoes, salty olives, and fragrant herbs to complement the fish’s flavour and tenderness.
