This roast salmon dish is easy to prepare and cook.
It's a one pot (or baking tray) meal that is so simple and straightforward.
Preparation takes a few minutes then it bakes in the oven itself - just turn the veg and salmon and that's all you need to do.
Select the veg according to the season, carrots, parsnips, potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, courgettes (zucchini) add them at intervals according to the time they take to cook and you've got a simple, one pot meal in about 40 minutes.
The potatoes take the most time to cook, then carrots, then parsnips and the other bits.
It's important to have the oven heated before you put the veg in.
Use the ingredients list as a guideline, but adapt to suit your own taste.
1 lb (500g) new potatoes
8 oz (250g) carrots - cut into chunks
8 oz (250g) parsnips - cut into chunks
8 oz (250g) sweet potatoes - cut into chunks
8 oz (250g) onion - cut into quarters
2 salmon steaks - about 8 oz each
You can add a couple of cloves of garlic if you like, just crush them and sprinkle over the veg, stir around until it is all mixed in. If you do add the garlic, then a tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley sprinkled over the dish at the end, just prior to serving would be lovely.
Heat the oven to 220c, 425F or gas mark 7.
Pour about a tablespoon of olive oil into a baking tin and heat for 10 minutes or so until the oil is hot.
Add the potatoes and stir them around to coat in oil.
Bake for 20 minutes, then add the carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes and onion quarters. If the potatoes have absorbed the oil, then add some more at this stage and toss all the vegetables in it.
Bake a further 10 minutes.
Stir everything around to coat - maybe add another tablespoon of oil if things are drying out.
Put the salmon steaks into the baking tin. Stir the veg around to coat in oil again.
Bake for 20 minutes, turning the salmon half way through.
The salmon will be firm to the touch when it's done.
Serve the salmon with the roasted veg and some butter to melt over :-)
