Baked Salmon with a different Coleslaw

Ok, have you sussed that I’ve still got a lot of Salmon left? Well what the hell to do with it is the quest and here is a recipe that should tickle yer cockles.

It involves cooking Salmon in a tin foil parcel. As it wasn’t cooked in Parchment paper, I can’t really call it “en papillote” as Frank would insist.

I had this with a nice tasty rice that I cooked in some chicken stock that I made previously. [see http://fabfoodblog.info/?p=74 ]

The “different coleslaw” is just a quick thing that I knocked up from things I had in the fridge.

For the Salmon you need er, salmon, and a piece of foil that is large enough to make a parcel that the salmon will fit in, without being too cramped

Place the salmon onto the foil and then add a glug of olive oil and a few slices of lemon and lime some sea salt and a twist of pepper and wrap the salmon up. Make sure the parcels are tightly done up at the edges as you don’t want the juices to run out.

 

Now put the parcels into a hot oven for 15-20 minutes

For the coleslaw , it’s easy to make your own as all it realy is , is shredded veg and mayonnaise. You could make your own mayo, or even an aioli or just use a shop bought one.  I was lucky as Frank had brought me some aioli ,(garlic mayo to me & you!) and mixed it with some low fat mayo.  For the veg ingredient I finely sliced beetroot, cucumber and spring onions

And that is is , take the salmon out of the oven, unwrap the parcel and slide the salmon onto your plate along with the coleslaw and rice

Squeeze some of the leftover lemon or lime over the fish and enjoy.
