Marvellously simple and packed full of flavour. This super healthy salmon tray bake would feel at home on a summers day, or cold winters night. Great for dinner, or leftovers for lunch the next day. This’ll feed a whole family, or just meal prep for one. If you’re just feeding one then you’ve got your dinners or lunches sorted here for the next four days… This tray bake is made using wild salmon, but it equally works well with chicken, or even halloumi as a meat free alternative. This recipe is healthy for a heap of reasons, but mainly it’s a really good way to get in lots of veggies. Get to your local farmers market and explore what they’ve got, what veggies are in season, what looks good, what veggies you might have never tried before. You can’t really go wrong. Try to find as many different colours as you can. Eat a rainbow of foods.
