Middle Eastern Salmon Tray Bake

A healthy and delicious tray bake that is ready in just over 30 minutes. The simple Yogurt marinade is quick to prepare, injects flavour and keeps the fish beautifully moist. I have included the recipe for an optional herby sauce which is well worth making if you have the ingredients. This salmon and lentil dish made such superb left overs the following day, so make extra if you need lunch on the go!⠀ ⠀ Serves 2⠀ ⠀ INGREDIENTS ⠀ ⠀ 2 Salmon fillets ⠀ 1 pouch of cooked beluga or Puy lentils - I use Merchant Gourmet ⠀ 2 small red onions chopped into wedges ⠀ 2 peppers chopped into chunks - I used orange and yellow ⠀ 1 red Chilli finely chopped (optional)⠀ 3 tablespoons pomegranate seeds⠀ ⠀ Marinade ⠀ 1 clove crushed garlic ⠀ 1 teaspoon grated ginger ⠀ 1/2 teaspoons ras el hanout spice⠀ 1 tablespoon Tims Dairy Natural Yogurt ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Optional sauce⠀ 1/2 bunch coriander ⠀ 1 clove garlic ⠀ 1 teaspoon grated ginger ⠀ 1/2 green chilli (optional ⠀ 1 teaspoon honey⠀ Juice of 1/2 lemon ⠀ 3 tablespoons olive oil⠀ ⠀ METHOD ⠀ ⠀ Mix the marinade ingredients together in a bowl.
