Salmon on Friday

Baking salmon is my favorite way to make it at home. No messy frying pan & no residual scent in the house. Combined with some light fresh ingredients this meal goes down well, and you don't feel guilty about seconds. Once you get the hang of this recipe try adding more herbs and other veg, possibilities are endless! 20130304-121938.jpg

Ingredients: 4 pieces of wild pacific salmon 5-6 oz each 1 leek, sliced into half moons and cleaned of any grit 1 lemon, sliced thinly 2 tomatoes, rough chop Olive oil Salt & pepper Pappardelle noodles Homemade or good quality store bought marinara sauce 1 tbsp cream to blush the sauce


Method: - preheat the oven to 350 - warm marinara sauce & get water for noodles boiling - arrange foil pockets on a baking sheet - fill with lemon, salmon, salt, pepper, leeks, tomatoes & drizzle with olive oil - close up the foil packets & bake for 20-25 minutes - cook your noodles according to the package instructions (about halfway through the salmon's cook time, so it's all hot at the same time) - add the cream to our marinara & turn off the heat - check the salmon at the 20 min mark, it should be cooked through, plate it all up & dig in!


We eat a lot of this & fish tacos during Lent. It's quick, nutritious & delish. My five year old asks for it regularly!
