Salmon in a Bag

Awhile back I bought a whole salmon in order to fillet it up and have a good supply of fish for a reasonable price. The whole thing cost about 18 quid and I managed to get about 15 decent fillets off it. not bad at all.

I've been mainly eating them with a jacket potato and some salad for a quick and easy tea.
This time however,  I wanted to do something a little different but still keep the quick and easy element.

It's a simple recipe were (nearly) all ingredients are cooked in a makeshift paper bag and served as it comes.
The lemon thyme is well worth tracking down but a splash of lemon juice will also do the trick.

1 salmon fillet
3-4 sun dried tomatoes, sliced
2 spring onions, sliced
200g new potatoes
Few sprigs of Lemon Thyme
1 tbsp rapeseed or olive oil
Salt and black pepper

Get the potatoes on the boil with plenty of salted water, depending on the size they should take about 10-15 minutes.
Get a large piece of greaseproof paper and place the salmon fillet in the middle, arrange all the other ingredients around the salmon.
Once the potatoes are soft, drain and slice in half and place around the salmon.
Drizzle over some oil and season with salt and pepper.
Seal up the bag by twisting and folding to reasemble a cornish pasty. ensure the ends are well twisted to ensure the steam stays inside.
Place in a Preheated oven at 180C for about 10-15 minutes.

Serve with a green salad to up your healthiness rating even more

  1. My mouth waters reading about this salmon dish. It looks so good. I'd add a squeeze of lemon because I'm mad for lemons... that and a glass/bottle of chilled white wine and I'm all set :)
