Baked Smoked Salmon and Seasonal Vegetables
This simple recipe is bound to impress anyone you serve it to and become a favourite dish. Despite its simplicity it always comes out as a great looking and tasting dish and can be customised in so many ways. It goes perfectly with a glass of white wine, and you could even swap the fish for chicken.
- Slightly smoked salmon fillet
- Salt and Pepper
- Herb Mix (optional)
- Choice of Vegetables (Asparagus, tomatoes, courgettes all work well)
- Olive Oil
Pre-heat your oven to 180°C.
Roll out enough tin foil to wrap your salmon and vegetables in a parcel. Place the salmon skin side up on the foil. Score the top of the skin slightly and sprinkle some salt and pepper. You can also add your herb mix at this point, but note that you don’t have to add much seasoning at all to smoked salmon to get the best from its flavour. Squeeze some lemon juice over the top.
Cut your seasonal vegetables so they are roughly the same size, and will cook in 15 minutes. I prefer asparagus, tomatoes and green beans. Curl up the sides of the foil and drizzle some good quality olive oil over the top.
Wrap the entire fish and vegetables up in a parcel and place in the oven. Depending on the size of fish it should take roughly 15 minutes. You can check when its done as the colour will be lighter and the fish will flake off easily.
