One-Pan Roast Salmon and Asparagus 

The tray bake is an easy way to make a tasty weeknight meal: very little prep and minimal washing up. Usually very tasty they’re rarely healthy, see for example Nigella’s Spanish Chicken.

This recipe from BBC Good Food has all the ease of a tray bake but less guilt. New potatoes are roasted over about 45 minutes while other ingredients are added to the pan. First in-season asparagus, then cherry tomatoes, and finally salmon fillets. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar mid-roast adds sweetness while the fresh factor is boosted by a handful of torn basil at the end.

An easily adaptable recipe that could see any meat, fish or seasonal veg thrown in. Replace asparagus and tomatoes with apple and Brussels sprouts and the salmon for belly pork, for instance. Doesn’t that sound good?!
