Your favorite quick & easy "anti-inflammatory" aka "Mediterranean" diet recipes and recipe sources?

Hi there, I don't post or read this board much (though I did search it before posting!) so apologies if this has been asked and answered a million times already, but I'm trying to support a family member who is starting to follow an anti-inflammatory/Mediterranean diet for arthritis pain management. I would love your input.

It's this diet here:
http://www.arthritistoday.org/what-yo...

But, for those of you who don't want to read the link, I'm looking for recipes that feature:

-cold-water fish
-nuts and seeds, especially walnuts, pine nuts, pistachios and almonds
-fruits and vegetables, especially dark and brightly-colored ones: strawberries, blue-berries, and other berries, tart cherries, apples, spinach, broccoli kale, bell peppers
-beans, especially red beans, small red kidney beans and pinto beans
-olive oil
-whole grains

So, you know me, I'm always looking for "quick and easy" recipes, now I'm looking for your favorite "quick and easy" anti-inflammatory recipes, bonus points for recipes that give you a lot of anti-inflammatory bang for your buck, ie., that hit a lot of the categories at once, say, almond-crusted salmon over sauteed kale and bell peppers

If you've got some favorite cookbooks or recipe websites, I'd love to hear those, too.

Thank you muchly!
