Baked Salmon, Asparagus, Tomatoes & Potatoes

11 Aug

Finally- a dish that is delicious, nutritious, and can be made in under an hour.


My darling new neighbor and good friend, Mshi, found a delightfully easy baked salmon recipe** from the book Home at 7, Dinner at 8 that we were both eager to try.

The recipe calls for nothing more than salmon, asparagus, tomatoes and potatoes, some olive oil, basic herbs + salt and pepper… which is quite the perfect combination of fresh & simple ingredients, if I do say so myself.

 The entire meal took us only 45 minutes to complete (including all the washing, cutting & baking) and, to be very honest, the process was so bizarrely easy that Mshi and I were bracing ourselves for a tasteless disappointment.  I mean, can good food be this quick?!


Turns out, it can!

This is the part when Mshi and I taste the salmon for the first time and start high-fiving each other like we just won the World Cup.

The baked salmon & veggies were unbelievably tasty (and healthy), especially when paired with white wine, fresh bread & a garlicky garden salad. I can’t wait to make this meal again.

Notes (*):

*Koreans say, “Hwaiting!” which I believe is derived from the English word, “fighting,” as a way to cheer themselves or others on.

**We followed the basic recipe, but omitted the Pancetta and added rosemary to the potatoes (only).  We also added dill and thyme to the salmon (only).
