baked salmon with oven chips and vegetables

with one comment

This is a lovely way to cook an entire meal in one oven tray. Most of this recipe comes from Jamie Oliver, the expert at quick and simple meals.


Preheat the oven to 260℃ (500℉). Top and tail 200g (7 oz) of green beans and blanch them in boiling water until just tender. Put them in a bowl with 300g (10oz) of cherry tomatoes, 170g (6oz) of pitted black olives and a handful of fresh basil leaves and toss them in a little olive oil. Boil 4-6 potatoes until just cooked through. Peel and slice into chips while still hot and allow them to dry thoroughly. Place in a bowl, toss them in some oil and season with salt and pepper. Wash and dry 4 salmon fillets then place them at one end of an oven tray. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with a squeeze of lemon juice and some olive oil on both sides. Place the vegetables in the centre of the tray and lay some anchovy fillets (a small can full) over them. Place the chips at the other end of the baking tray. Bake for 12-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon filets and serve with wedges of lemon.
