Salmon Recipes: Tray Baked Salmon With Olives

Tray Baked Salmon With Olives

  • 7 oz green beans
  • 20 small cherry tomato
  • 1 handful black olives
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 x 8 oz thick salmon, fillet, steaks, with or without skin, but definitely pin-boned
  • 2 lemon
  • 1 handful fresh basil
  • 12 anchovy, fillets
  • 1/2 small clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg, yolk
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil, approximately
  • 1 cup olive oil, approximately
  • lemon, juice, to taste
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
Cooking Procedures:
  • Tail the green beans, blanch them until tender in salted, boiling water, and drain. Put in a bowl with the cherry tomatoes and the stoned olives.
  • Toss in the olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Give the salmon fillets a quick wash under the tap and pat dry with kitchen paper towels.
  • Squeeze the juice of 1/2 a lemon over the fillets, on both sides, then season both sides with salt and pepper and drizzle a little olive oil over the top.
  • Preheat the oven and a roasting tray at the highest temperature. Put your 4 fillets of salmon at 1 end of the roasting tray.
  • Toss the basil into the green beans, olives and tomatoes and place this mixture at the other end of the tray. Lay the anchovies over the green beans.
  • Roast in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and serve with lemon quarters.
  • This is very tasty with some homemade mayonnaise or aioli. (See Aioli recipe)
  • Smash up the garlic with the salt in a mortar and pestle (if you don't have a mortar and pestle you can very finely chop the garlic).
  • Place the egg yolk and mustard in a bowl and whisk. Then start to add your olive oil bit by bit. Once you've blended in a half cup of the olive oil you can start to add the rest in larger amounts.
  • When you've added it all, you can add the garlic and lemon (to taste) and any extra flavours such as basil, fennel tops, dill, chopped roast nuts.
  • To finish just season to taste with salt, freshly ground black pepper and lemon juice.
