One tray salmon and carrot bake

Simple meals don’t have to be boring  

I have been on a mission to make simple and tasty meals. I aim to create recipes that can be prepared and cooked quickly on a busy weeknight. We all struggle to make healthy and delicious meals while keeping on top of everything else in life. So this recipe is designed to be healthy, delicious and easy to make. You can cook this meal on a single tray in the oven. The preparation takes no more than 20 minutes and is portioned to feed four adults.  

Orange dinner anyone? 

I like to eat the rainbow as often as possible, but sometimes you just have to pick one colour and run with it, today I’m running with orange. This week my recipe is all of the orange foods, that aren’t actually oranges, in one meal. 

OK I know salmon isn’t really orange but it kind of looks orange with the carrots and sweet potato.
