This is my favorite way to cook salmon. It takes about 3 minutes to prepare, it's a one pan dinner and it's delicious. Sadly, I cannot take any credit for this at all. It's a recipe I found recently in a lovely British cookbook called "Home at 7, Dinner by 8" by Sophie Wright. I've changed a few things, Sophie's recipe called for very thinly sliced potatoes which I left out and I added some very finely chopped lemons, which I love when roasted. I suppose you could use other fish, such as halibut and add some different veggies - maybe some artichoke hearts? but this was delicious and a great quick fish dish to have up one's sleeve.
Wild salmon fillets
A couple of slices of prosciutto
1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed
A handful of grape or cherry tomatoes
Salt and pepper
Fresh herbs of your choice
Heat the oven to 425 F
Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Place the salmon, tomatoes, asparagus and lemon chunks on the tray.
Sprinkle over olive oil, salt and pepper and torn up pieces of prosciutto.
Sprinkle over some herbs and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
I enjoyed this with a glass (or two) of very chilled Pinot.
