My friend brought over baked salmon for dinner one night, I am not entirely sure what was in the topping, hers was spicy and there was a lot of veggies and cilantro! I am not a fan of cilantro, so I used parsley in my version and mine isn’t spicy, I am not even sure if I used the same veggies, but hers did give me the inspiration to make this, so thank you Asmahan!
So I made this again yesterday and added sriracha to the veggie mixture, it didn’t make it spicy but it did make it more flavourful. I really recommend added some if you have any!
What you will need:
- 1 whole side filet wild caught salmon
- 1/2 red bell pepper
- 1/2 orange bell pepper
- 2 shallots or 3-4 tbsp red onion
- 1/2 cup fresh parsley or cilantro
- 1 small jalapeno (optional)
- 1 tomato
- salt to season
- extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Chop and dice peppers, shallots, tomato and parsley. Combine in a bowl, season with salt and drizzle with olive oil, taste and adjust seasoning. If you want it a bit more spicy add pepper or red pepper flakes.
Place a piece of parchment on a baking sheet and place salmon on the pan. Place salmon on top of pan, season with a little salt and top with vegetable mixture. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.
