Simple Salmon

I'm still working a fairly ridiculous schedule at the moment, which has put a fairly large crimp in my cooking/blogging activities. Sad. But it at least reminds me why I started this blog - to share recipes that minimize input (time, money, effort) for maximum enjoyment.

In that vein, I bring you the miracle recipe- the dish with no washing up!

Simple Salmon

You will need:

1 frozen fillet of salmon
3 slices of lemon
Spray oil

oven tray
  1. Preheat oven to 200 C. Line oven tray with foil.
  2. Tear off large (approx 0.5 m) piece of foil. Fold in half lengthwise and spray with oil.
  3. Put salmon in the middle of foil on oiled side. Top with lemon and pepper.
  4. Fold the foil over the salmon and fold the edges up towards the centre. Crimp the edges of the foil so it forms a little parcel.
  5. Place parcel on tray and bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Serve with salad.
That is it! Add herbs (e.g. chives, bay) or spices (e.g. cinnamon, paprika) if you want extra flavour - but I think it's delicious with just lemon and pepper. Since the tray was lined with foil, it doesn't need washing. And if you use plastic cutlery and plates, the cleanup involves nothing more than throwing a couple of things in the bin. (Not the most environmentally friendly method, but hey, it gets the job done!)
