Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- 2 salmon fillets
- 20 skinny stalks of asparagus
- 6-8 cherry tomatoes optional
- olive oil
- 2 large handfuls fresh herbs eg oregano, chives, flat-leaf parsley, basil
- salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Lay the salmon fillets in a the middle of a small baking pan, and surround them with the asparagus and tomatoes. Drizzle some olive oil over the vegetables.
To make the herb crust, remove any stalks and chop the herbs finely. Place them in a bowl and add just enough olive oil for a loose paste to form. Spread the herbs over the salmon.
Season everything with salt and pepper, then roast for about 12 minutes - or until the salmon is cooked to your liking.
