Quick and Easy Teriyaki Salmon

I decided that my blog was seriously lacking in quick and easy recipes. On my ‘About Me’ page you will see that one of the topics I wanted to cover on here was food. Very apt since it is a huge love of mine. Quick and easy recipes massively appeal to me and I would imagine it would certainly appeal to those with families. I do love putting time into a nice meal but after work I see it as a bit of a chore so try to keep it fairly simple. This recipe is an adaption of Madeleine Shaw’s Teriyaki Salmon.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • Salmon fillets – 2 packs of 2
  • 4 spring onions (shredded)
  • 4 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • Lazy ginger
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • Egg noodles/Buckwheat noodles/Rice

Method

  • Heat the oven to 200c.
  • Place each fillet in the middle of a piece of foil (30cm x 30cm would be plenty).
  • Pour 1 tbsp of soy sauce and 1 tbsp of honey over each fillet.
  • Add half clove crushed garlic to each parcel.
  • Add as much or as little ginger as you want to each parcel.
  • Shred one spring onion over each fillet.
  • Wrap the parcel like a pasty (pictured) and make sure there are no gaps for the juices to leak.
  • Put the salmon into the oven for 25 mins.
  • Depending on what you decide to serve the salmon with cook accordingly. I usually do it with egg noodles so cook these about 5 mins before the end.
  • Service the salmon and juices on top of the noodles/rice.

Tuck in and enjoy!

Chicken Tray bake

Chicken Tray bake

It would only be right to start by sharing one of my favourite Jamie Oliver recipes since he’s already had a mention in my introductory blog. The very famous Chicken Tray Bake! This meal is so tasty, easy to throw together and requires little to no brain power (ideal after a long day at work). I have cooked it for the family  a couple of times and even tried it when hosting a small dinner party and it went down an absolute treat.

Serves 4 – 6

Ingredients

  •  A handful of fresh basil
  • 1 bulb of garlic
  • 1 handful of black olives
  • A small ciabatta loaf (torn).
  • 8 free-range chicken thighs or drumsticks
  • 2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes
  • olive oil
  • Chilli Flakes
  • 8 slices of higher-welfare pancetta or thin-sliced smoked streaky bacon

Method

  • Heat the oven to 180c.
  • Load the Chicken, Ciabatta, Olives, Tomatoes, basil and Garlic cloves into a baking tray that’s around 2.5 inches deep.
  • Sprinkle with Chilli flakes (dependent on how spicy you’d like it).
  • Drizzle generously with Olive oil and give it all a shake.
  • Finish by laying the pancetta on top.
  • Cook on the middle shelf for 50 minutes.
  • Serve with any veggies of you choice. I usually go for long stem broccoli.
Note

If you don’t want your pancetta or bacon all that crispy add this around 30 mins into cooking.

Get stuck in and enjoy!
