Salmon Traybake

I’m a massive fan of quick and easy dinners at the moment.  I think it’s the fact that the nights are drawing in, which makes me feel the evening’s are disappearing quicker than normal!  I just want something I can chuck in the oven and 20 – 30 minutes later, it’s all done and ready to be scoffed!  Saying that, I still want it to be tasty and healthy.

Salmon seems to be a weekly staple for me throughout summer and winter as it’s such a versatile fish.  Full of protein, healthy fats, and of course, gluten free!  I love this one-pot meal, and again, you can add pretty much any vegetables you have lying around to this dish!
