Ingredients for Thai salmon traybake
I’ve used 1 salmon fillet chopped into large chunks
Herbs and spices – basil, coriander, ginger, chilli and garlic. Wow-what a flavour combo that is!
There is also fresh spinach, some baby tomatoes, spring onions chopped. The juice of half a lime, a teaspoon of sesame seeds, half an avocado sliced and a tablespoon of olive oil and salt and pepper.
How to make this
Now making this just couldn’t be easier. You literally line your small baking tray/oven dish with the spinach leaves then toss on everything else, drizzle on the oil and add your salt and pepper.
Cover the dish with foil and pop it into a preheated oven at 200C for 25 minutes and that my friends it that.
I’m sure purists would say this is not Thai at all, well to me it has the spices I associate with Thai cooking; basil and coriander, lime, ginger and ginger. Maybe I should call it Thai inspired salmon bake.
I just serve this salmon traybake as it is. No additions whatsoever as I find it quite filling enough.
However, if you do want to add something I would suggest some simple rice on the side.
