This easy and totally delicious Salmon Tray bake was inspired by Jamie Oliver. It’s unusual and as a sweet potato lover I am completely in love with it. All you need is a nice salad and if you like some rice. I have to admit I double carbed it and ate it with brown rice.
You can make all of this dish in the oven ( bar the accompaniment). Salmon is becoming such a staple that I figured we need as many ways to cook it as possible. One of the reasons it is so good is because it’s quick. This recipe does require a bit of oven time at first but it can be left to do it’s thing while you go away and do yours. Set a timer on your phone to get the fish just right.
Scale it up to feed heaps of people too. It would make a great serve yourself dish for a crowd. I’ve added chilli as a garnish but I think if you chopped up a chilli and added it to the lime and soy sauce it would be even better. I was kind of hoping my fussy eater might go for it. he ate the sweet potato and left the salmon. Such a disappointment!
