July 10-Salmon Baked in Foil & Oven Crisp Sweet Potatoes

Salmon Baked in Foil 
By Giada De Laurentiis
4 5oz salmon fillets
2 tsp + 2tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper
3 tomatoes, chopped
2 shallots, chopped
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
*I also added a small can of black olives, sliced.

1. Preheat oven to 400. Sprinkle salmon with 2 tsp oil, salt, and pepper.
2. In a medium bowl, toss tomatoes, shallots, olives, 2 tbsp oil, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper.
3. Place salmon fillet oil side down atop a sheet of foil. Wrap the ends of the foil in a spiral shape. Spoon the tomato mixture over the salmon. Fold sides of the foil over the fish/tomato mixture, covering completely, to seal the packet closed. Place pack on a heavy baking sheet. Repeat for each fillet.
4. Bake until done, about 25 minutes.

Oven Crisp Sweet Potatoes
2-3 sweet potatoes, cut into thin slices
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2-1 tsp cayenne pepper (I used 1 tsp and 2 potatoes and the ratio made for pretty spicy spuds!)
salt & pepper

1. Toss all ingredients to coat potatoes.
2. Lay potatoes on a baking sheet and back on 400 for about 30-40 minutes, or until potatoes are crisp done.
