Garlic and Herb Salmon fillets served with Roasted Chunky Vegetables and New Baby Potatoes with Rosemary

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes



Preheat oven to 180°C.

Cut vegetables into bite-sized chunks. Cut and crush the garlic. Finely chop the basil leaves.

Mix olive oil in a bowl with garlic, thyme, basil and lemon juice.

Lightly oil the ovenproof dish and place salmon skin-side down.

Pour the garlic and herb mixture over the salmon.

Bake for 45 minutes.

When the salmon is placed in the oven, par-boil the new baby potatoes and chunky vegetables for 10 minutes.

In a bowl, combine the baby potatoes and chunky vegetables and drizzle some olive oil.

Add the potatoes and vegetables around the salmon in the ovenproof dish and sprinkle fresh rosemary leaves on top of the baby potatoes.

The last fifteen minutes of baking, add in the cherry tomatoes on the vine and red onion in the ovenproof dish.

Let the dish bake away until salmon is cooked through, and the chunky vegetables are soft and tender.

Bon Appetit and don’t forget to do the washing up too.
