I’m a bit fussy about baked salmon recipes as a result of a pale, colourless salmon fillet simply doesn’t rock my boat. Give me caramelisation! A sticky glaze! A crunchy crust!

Components

Right here’s all you must make this salmon tray bake.

The salmon and marinade-paste

  • Salmon – It doesn’t matter if it’s skinless or pores and skin on because the paste isn’t slathered on the underside. The pores and skin received’t go crisp so if this bothers you, simply eat the flesh off the pores and skin. There’s sufficient paste to make use of for 4 fillets as much as 200g/7oz. The usual serving measurement is 180g/6 ouncesof salmon per particular person. Substitute: recipe additionally works completely with trout.

  • Dijon mustard – This thickens the marinade right into a paste that sticks to the salmon in addition to including a bit mustard tang. You may’t actually style it, to be sincere.

  • Lemon – We’re utilizing each the zest and juice. Zest for precise lemon flavour, and juice for tang. (As a result of lemon juice actually is generally simply bitter, a lot of the lemon flavour is within the zest).

  • Salt and pepper – Fish likes salt! Don’t shortchange your self.

The greens

I’m utilizing asparagus and cherry tomatoes as a result of they prepare dinner in the identical time because the salmon. Attempt to use thicker asparagus, else it would get a bit too tender. When you can solely discover skinny ones, contemplate including them onto the tray partway by way of the prepare dinner time.

  • Asparagus – No have to trim the asparagus with a knife! Do you know the ends will naturally break on the level the place the woody finish is. Attempt it, it completely works! (However not with limp outdated ones).

  • Cherry tomatoes – Nicely, grape tomatoes really! I exploit one commonplace punnet (200g/7 oz).

  • Salt, pepper and olive oil – For seasoning.

  • Parmesan – For showering on the finish. On the spot face elevate!

Various greens – Something that may prepare dinner in the identical time because the salmon, reminiscent of inexperienced beans or skinny broccolini (break up thick ones in half lengthwise). I like how the florets go crunchy!
