Tray-Baked Salmon with Olives, Green beans, Anchovies and Tomatoes
November 07th, 2017
This recipe, Tray –baked Salmon with Olives, Green beans, Anchovies and Tomatoes, serves 4 by Jamie Oliver. I have made this on a number of occasions, and without fail, it’s delicious! One of Jamie Oliver’s best I think!
200g green beans
20 small cherry tomatoes
1-2 good handfuls of black olives
2 tables spoons of extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
4 thick salmon fillets
1 handful fresh basil
12 anchovy fillets
First top and tail the green beans, blanch them until tender in boiling water and drain. Put in a bowl with the cherry tomatoes and the stoned olives. Toss in the olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Give the salmon fillets a quick wash under the tap and pat dry with kitchen paper. Squeeze the juice of ½ lemon over the fillets, on both sides, then season both sides with salt and pepper and drizzle a little olive oil over the top. Preheat the oven and a roasting tray at 220 degrees centigrade or 450 degrees Fahrenheit or gas mark 7 . Put the salmon fillets at one end of the roasting tray. Toss the basil into the green beans, olives and tomatoes and place this mixture at the other end of the tray. Lay the anchovies over the green beans. Roast in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and serve with lemon quarters.
Extra virgin olive oil is worth paying for, as it has been naturally extracted rather than chemically extracted from olives. Natural extraction means that it will still contain the phenolic antioxidants that give it it’s distinctive flavour and make it so valuable in preventing against heart disease. This dish is packed full of antioxidants and omega 3 oils and is very simple to make.
