Traybakes are super-fast and easy, perfect for a midweek feast and my baked salmon with olives and peppers is a doozey.


  • 1 x 500g roasted peppers, roughly chopped
  • 150g black pitted olives, roughly chopped
  • 10 spring onions, cut into large diagonals
  • 1x 300g bag washed spinach
  • 1 x 800g middle fillet of salmon (200g each) on the skin but scaled, no pin bones
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly milled black pepper

  • Pre-heat the oven to 230C gas 8.
  • Place the peppers, olives, spring onions into a baking tray, mix well.
  • Season well with salt and pepper, then sprinkle over the spinach leaves.
  • Make a hole in the centre and place the salmon fillet in, again season well with salt and pepper.
  • Place the tray into the hot oven and cook for 12-14 minutes, or roughly until the salmon fillet is half cooked (you will see small white globules of cooked protein halfway up the side of the fillet, but the centre fillet still raw)
  • Remove the tray from the oven when the salmon half cooked, cover with foil and leave in a warm place for 15 minutes. 
  • After 15 minutes, re mix all the peppers and the wilted spinach, check the seasoning, the fish will now be perfectly cooked.
  • Serve in the tray and spoon off the salmon with the vegetables.
