My Little Chef - Mediterranean Salmon

Sometimes we get caught up in new recipes that we often forget to show off some of our favourites. We love quick and healthy meals and William's Mediterranean salmon is one of our regular meals.
A good and lovely piece of Fish, potatoes and some vegetables into a salsa and a quick and simple meal for all of the family.

Salmon Fillets
300g Potatoes
1 Yellow Pepper
1 Red Pepper
1 Green Pepper
2 Onions
1 can of Chopped Tomatoes
Cutting Board
  Oven Tray
William started by slicing the potatoes into 1cm pieces.

He then placed them into a saucepan of water and par-boiled them. William then drained and placed the potatoes on to a oven tray ready to roast.

William then cut and cored the red, yellow and green peppers. He then sliced them into 2cm strips.

Once sliced he cut the strips into small squares.

William then peeled, sliced and chopped the onions.

William then placed the contents of the chopped tomatoes into a saucepan and added the peppers and onions and added a tablespoon of paprika to the dish.

He then placed these on a low heat and continually stirred.
William then wrapped the salmon fillets in foil and placed them and the potatoes into the oven for 25 minutes.

Once the slices of potatoes has "puffed" and gone golden he took them out. The fish should take the same amount of time but keep them in the foil to keep the heat and juices together.
He then layered the different ingredients. He started off with the potatoes on the bottom, placed a couple of spoonful's of the homemade salsa on top of the potatoes and placed the salmon fillet balancing on top.
To accompany the dish William decided he wanted roasted tomatoes which cooked at the same time as the potatoes and fish.

The dish takes less than an hour to cook from the start and the majority of the time is either prepping the food or the time it is roasting in the oven and needs very little attention.

The homemade salsa has a little kick with the paprika but not too much to over power the dish. It is a simple, healthy and quick meal that is a regular in our meal plans.

What do you think? Will you give this a go?

I am rubbish when it comes to cooking salmon but if William can cook it surely I can too. I think we will have to give this a try x
