Simple Oven Baked Salmon – With Juicy Vegetables

Simple Oven Baked Salmon Fillets

If you would like to enjoy a light, well balanced dish at dinner, prepare yourself a simple oven baked salmon with juicy vegetables. The combination of baked salmon fillets and fresh vegetables makes the dish delicious.

Talking about vegetables to combine with a salmon, there are many more options definitely. I found the best a mix of a cherry tomatoes, spring onions and red chilli pepper to use in this recipe. The chilli pepper adds a slight spicy touch to your dish.

I don’t like overcooked vegetables as a result of baking process. Especially cherry tomatoes tend to be ready very soon. The salmon fillets need a little more time to be done perfectly. I start with baking a salmon first and I add vegetables later. I bake my vegetables for 10 minutes. But if you don’t like the skin from cherry tomatoes being peeled away too easily, bake them a little shorter, about 4-5 minutes.

Serve your oven baked salmon fillets immediately. There is no additional side dish needed to enjoy your dinner. But if you feel like having something small with your baked salmon fillets, try a simply cooked sweet potato. In this case, start making your dinner with cooking the sweet potato in the pot of boiling water. To cook a large sweet potato until soft takes about 45 minutes. Peel the cooked sweet potato, cut into the circles and share with the rest of your family. :)

I hope you will enjoy cooking your simple oven baked salmon. I’d be more than happy if you can leave me your comments below.

Cooking Salmon on the Stove – Salmon Cubes with Broccoli

IMG_3018

Salmon fillets or a whole salmon is prepared on the grill or in the oven mostly. But there are many different variations of cooking salmon on the stove also. If you are looking for a simple way  of preparing a salmon fillets on the stove top, accompanied with a healthy vegetables, I have one simple recipe to share with you now.

The best is to use a skinless salmon fillets to prepare this dish, to cut them into cubes  and cook until cooked through, but slightly pink in the center.

All in one pan, this tasty and colourful dish can make a perfect dinner to share with your whole family. I like when broccoli keeps its fresh green colour, when served. I try to not overcook broccoli and I cook it over the steam usually. For this recipe I like to divide broccoli crowns into a small florets instead of cutting them into the thin pieces. Broccoli florets make a nice bite sized pieces and they look great on the serving plate also.

Serve your salmon cubes cooked on the stove immediately. If you fill like a little side dish would be nice to enjoy with your salmon dinner, serve with a simply cooked rice or a brown rice.

Enjoy your cooked salmon fillets dinner!

Looking forward to receiving your comments below.

Oven Baked Salmon Fillets – Stuffed with Smoked Salmon

IMG_3038There are many varietes of preparing a salmon fillets in the oven. I am going to share with you the best oven baked salmon fillets recipe I have ever prepared. I stuff salmon fillets with a smoked salmon, the one, ready to use, you serve as a snack with a piece of fresh bread or a crunchy baguette, usually.

To prepare your salmon fillets ready to stuffing you need to butterfly it firstly, which simply means to cut each salmon fillet through to open it like a book. Using a sharp knife start cutting a salmon fillet through, from the right side to the left.  Moving a knife slowly through the fillet it will start to open easily. There is nothing complicated about butterflying your salmon fillet at all. :) Once the salmon fillet is opened, arrange a small smoked salmon pieces over a one half of each salmon fillet, then fold over to enclose filling.

This dish tastes great when served on its own. A little baby greens or a rocket salad with balsamic vinegar can be a great companion for your baked salmon fillets.

I usually serve baked salmon with a homemade lemon mayonnaise.

  • Into the mixing bowl add 1 egg yolk and 1 tsp mustard.
  • Whisk with an electric mixer, then start adding a vegetable oil by drops.
  • When all the ingredients combine together well, forming a smooth consistency, start pouring in more oil slowly, until you have used up the rest of oil /about 1 cup/.
  • Season with a pinch of salt, ground black pepper/optional/ and finally pour in a lemon juice from a half of small lemon and combine.
  • Lemon juice will make your mayonnaise lighter and smoother. Simply delicious!

Lemon mayonnaise adds a refreshing touch to your oven baked salmon fillets.
