Easy Salmon with Peppers
October 4, 2012 § Leave a comment
Last night I threw together some one pot cooking that was so ridiculously easy but still tasty that I just felt compelled to share it. I would use whatever veggies you have on hand–broccoli, snap peas, would all be delicious this way. I had an abundance of bell peppers and that worked out very nicely.
Ingredients:Salmon Veggies of choice (I used bell peppers) 1/4 brown sugar 1/4 soy sauce 1/2 sweet yellow onion 1 large clove garlic, minced 2 tbsp. olive oil 1/2 tbsp. salt + more to season 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar pepper to season thyme, parsley or other seasonings to taste
First, I marinated the salmon in a 1/4 c. light brown sugar and 1/4 soy sauce marinade for about an hour and flipped it once.
Preheat the oven to 400° and chop your veggies into approx. 1 inch/bite size pieces. Drizzle 1 tbsp. olive oil in the roasting pan and drop in the veggies with sliced onion and minced garlic. Sprinkle with 1/2 tbsp salt and some pepper. Roast for 5 minutes.
Nestle the salmon in the roasting pan and season the fish with salt, pepper and whatever else you like (I used thyme and parsley). Put back in the oven for approx. 15 minutes or until the center is opaque.
Fini! Really, that’s it. Just serve over rice and drizzle 1 tbsp. olive oil mixed with 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar and enjoy. There are plenty of ways you can go with this, add on some capers or scallions, lemon juice…anything!
