favourite dishes as its so adaptable and always comes out tasting
What you need
Salmon Fillet (I prefer it partly smoked)
Asparagus, courgette, green beans or Vegetables of your choice
First you should preheat your oven if needed, set it to around 180 degrees, then you want to place the salmon on some tin foil that will be big enough to hold your fish and your veg when wrapped up.
Next score the salmon slightly on the top. Now sprinkle some salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon on to the fish. You can also sprinkle some pre-mixed herbs and spice mix onto it if you wish. I usually add a little garlic or some italian herb mix too. Salmon is so tasty on its own you can get away with just adding a little seasoning.
Now you want to add your veg, I prefer asparagus and some courgette and green beans. Slice them up so they are all roughly the same size, in this case we want to keep the veg quite small as the fish won’t take long to cook. Again sprinkle a little salt and pepper to taste. Now curl up the edges slightly on your tin foil and add a few drizzles of olive oil over the top. Now wrap up the edges so it is all wrapped up like a parcel and stick it in the oven. Depending on the size of fish you will want to cook it for around 18minutes, but check the guides on any fish you buy.
Take out the foil parcel when done, open a corner and drain off any excess oil. The salmon should just be starting to flake off when its done and you should see the colour getting lighter throughout. Place it on a plate and you’re done. You can even do a few at a time in the oven with each persons vegetable preferences in their parcels.
