What You Need For Salmon Tray Bake
Salmon – I used 4 salmon fillets to serve 4 people – adjust according to how many people are eating.
Olive oil – For drizzling over both the vegetables and the salmon. You can use a flavour infused oil if you prefer.
Herbs and Spices – I used dried mixed herbs, sea salt, and ground black pepper. You can use your favourite herbs or spices, dried chilli flakes are a good option.
Lemon – Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice over the salmon fillets.
Vegetables – Use your favourite vegetables or what is available.
My selection changes each time I make it, but some options could include;
- New Potatoes
- Red Onions
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Green Beans
- Sweet Potatoes
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas Mark 6.
Wash and chop the vegetables up into similar sizes. Peel any vegetables that need it.
Put all the vegetables on a large baking tray – you might need to use two if there isn’t enough space on one.
Drizzle with the oil and season with salt, pepper, and herbs or spices.
Roast in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the vegetables soften.
Remove the baking tray from the oven and make some space for the salmon.
Add the salmon and drizzle or brush a little more oil over each one. Squeeze some lemon juice over each one and sprinkle with dried herbs or spices. Optionally season with salt and pepper too.
Return the baking tray to the oven and cook for a further 10 to 15 minutes until the salmon is cooked through.
The beauty of this recipe is that it is ready to be served without the need to cook any extra side dishes.
You can optionally serve it with some green salad.
