Salmon Tray Bake Recipe by Fearne Cotton

Tray Bake Recipe

I love a tray bake recipe as you get to whack a whole host of foods and flavours together, which makes it quick to make and also extremely flavoursome.

Each ingredient seeps into the next, complementing each other and adding to the overall deliciousness. This is a very simple and easy recipe but will feed four hungry faces very well indeed. It is a good-looking, no-messing dish that is bursting with great protein and healthy veg!

Serves 4


650g new potatoes
3 tbsp olive oil
16 asparagus spears
1 red onion, cut into wedges
250g cherry tomatoes
2 fresh rosemary sprigs
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
4 boneless salmon fillets, skin on
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/400°F/Gas mark 6.
2. Put the potatoes and oil in a baking tray and toss to combine. Season well with salt and pepper and bake for 15 minutes until slightly golden.
3. Add the onion, tomatoes, rosemary and balsamic vinegar, combine, and bake for another 10 minutes.
4. Season the salmon fillets and add to the tray of vegetables together with the asparagus and cook for a final 10–12 minutes, until the salmon is just cooked.
5. Serve immediately.
