baked salmon with potatoes

this is a great no frills recipe that i want to share with you guys living abroad/by yourself. i didnt mention "cheap thrills" as salmon isnt exactly very cheap, but sometimes you get it cheap at hypermarkets :)

i got the recipe from here. it is an ala-jamie oliver recipe. trust me, it is so simple that even a cooking n00b like me can do this.

  1. salmon fillets
  2. butter
  3. rosemary
  4. mixed herbs
  5. olive oil
  6. a pinch of salt
  7. grounded black pepper
  8. lemon slices
  9. tomatoes slices
  10. potatoes (about 1 medium sized potato for one fillet)

Step 1: Prepare ingredients.

Step 2: Parboil potatoes with skin until it softens. After about 25mins or so, cool down potatoes with cold water and skin them. Slice them up in wedges form (or slices if you prefer).

Step 3: Line baking tray with aluminium foil and put salmon in. Throw in parboiled potatoes, tomatoes and a slice or two of lemon. Ground black pepper on top, sprinkle some rosemary, mixed herbs, salt and drizzle a teaspoon of olive oil. Top it all off with a small slab of butter.

Step 4: Wrap up the goodies filled parcel and pop it into the oven. Bake at 180 celcius for about 15 mins or until flesh is flaky that it detaches from bones.

Step 5: SERVE!

wholesome meal

do try it out! its as easy as you read it, really...

important #tips- make sure you parboil the potatoes until they are 80% soft. mine failed (still alil hard) cos i didnt boil them long enough. also, dont squeeze too much lemon on the salmon, or else lemon taste will be overpowering ;-)

healthy no frills meal, as good as it looks and sounds :)
