One tray balsamic salmon

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.  

Balsamic salmon 

I’m a big fan of salmon, it is so easy to prepare, and it tastes great. This recipe is super easy to make, and everything cooks perfectly in 15 minutes. The balsamic vinegar adds a nice tart flavour to this dish that cuts through the richness of the salmon.
