Fish dinners are not my strong side. I know more about various fish types now than I did a few years ago, and I know how to prepare most of them, but still I feel like there is little variation in the fish dinners I serve and I often find them a little bland. There are a few exceptions though, both are salmon recipes. I will show you one today.
This recipe is the easiest fish recipe you can imagine – and it is also very good! For three people you need:
- A bit of oil
- One leek or 2-3 spring onions
- Three carrots
- A handful of parsley
- 450-600 grams (about a pound) of salmon filet
- One lemon
I also often add asparagus or broccoli, depending a bit on what we have in the fridge.
Get a bit of aluminum foil, sprinkle it with a bit of oil. Add the vegetables, starting with the leeks or spring onions and finish with the salmon. Sprinkle the juice from half a lemon over the fish and, if you like, add a few lemon slices over the fish. Add a wee bit of salt and a bit of black ground pepper ( I sometimes add a bit of butter or flavoured butter with garlic or herbes). Wrap the foil around the food and cook in a preheated oven at 175 degrees for about 45 minutes. Serve with potatoes, rice, or as is. Enjoy!
