Description

Beautiful tender salmon fillets, with delicious mediterranean vegetables, and baked baby potatoes.


Ingredients

Scale

4 Salmon fillets (approx 130g each)

One red pepper, chopped

One yellow pepper, chopped

One courgette, sliced

One red onion, chopped

Baby vine tomatoes or cherry tomatoes (about 20), halved

Basil

Dill

Parsley

Juice of a whole lemon

Rind of half a lemon

Freshly ground black pepper

16 new potatoes or baby potatoes, halved


Instructions

  1. Set the oven to 180 degrees c.
  2. In a large oven proof dish, place the halved potatoes and spray with spray oil and a sprinkle of dried parsley. Place in the oven.
  3. In another oven proof dish place all the chopped vegetables and spray with spray oil, a sprinkle of basil and a little squeeze of the lemon juice, mix well. After the potatoes have been in the oven for 10 minutes, place the vegetables in the oven.
  4. In a jug or a bowl, mix the remainder of  the juice from the lemon, the rind of half a lemon, freshly ground black pepper and a sprinkle of dill.
  5. Brush the salmon fillets with this mixture. Once the vegetables have been in for 10 minutes, and potatoes have been in for 20 minutes, put the salmon on top of the vegetables, pour any remaining mixture over the vegetables, cover the oven dish with foil to seal in the moisture and continue to cook for a further 20 minutes.
  6. Remove both trays from the oven, check the salmon is cooked through – serve and enjoy!
