Seasonal Asparagus

This seasons recipe includes the use of Asparagus.  It is well known that British Asparagus is among the best in the world, and I usually have it simply with pan fried fish and boiled new potatoes.

To still enjoy this wonderful ingredient alongside my other favourites I decided to make a one pot dish that I can pop in my Rangemaster and enjoy on a weeknight with the family - quick, easy and healthy.

This dish is being entered into the Rix Petroleum's Food Blogger Competition where every month you can win Waitrose food vouchers too. Our Local Southsea Waitrose branch has recently undergone a make-over so I couldn't think of a better way to spend an afternoon browsing the new shiny isles and fresh food counters!

Roasted Salmon and Asparagus

You will need:
2 fillets of salmon
Handful of asparagus
350g new potatoes
Punnet of vine cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar

Pre-heat the oven to 200C
Add the potatoes drizzled with half the oil into an ovenproof dish and cook for 10 minutes.  
Add the salmon, tomatoes, remaining oil and vinegar and season everything with salt and pepper and cook for a further 10 minutes.
Finally and the asparagus and cook for a final 10 minutes.

So simple, and yet so tasty too! I hope you enjoy this week night dish as much as I do.

This is a dish for Rix Aga Inspired Recipes:
