Salmon with asparagus baked in olive oil

The best things in life are easy and that’s why I love this simple dish.  You put virtually all the ingredients including the fish in the pan and just bake in the oven.

I would suggest cooking the asparagus just eight minutes before the dish is ready to be fished out. Overcooked asparagus can develop a very stringy texture.

You can serve the fish with bread, steamed rice or boiled baby potatoes. It also goes very well with garlic bread and a glass of red wine. Life is too short to slave over a hot stove, so enjoy this recipe!

2 Pieces salmon fillets
1 vegetable stock cube – no msg
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1/2  tablespoon butter (optional)

3. Unpack the salmon and place the pieces in a baking tray.

4. Fill with water up to 1/2 inch and throw in the vegetable stock cube.

5. Put a dash of olive oil and a knob of butter.

6. Cook in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes.

7. The asparagus can be thrown in to cook for the last 5 to 8 minutes.

8. Remember – asparagus is very stringy when overcooked so keep the cooking time to a minimal.
