Probably one of the easiest, quickest meals we’ve done, and so great for little ones.
There wasn’t much to do so prep wise so we played with maths and expressive arts & design (just ticking that one off the EYFS)
You will need:
- Two fillets of salmon
- Tomatoes on vine
- Schwartz hollandaise sauce (because I have zero time for the whisking malarkey)
(I’m going to reiterate portion sizes are your preference but I’ll show you what we used for ours)
- Lay out tin foil and place salmon fillet in the middle, add spinach and 3 asparagus spears (break stalk off where it bends) can leave whole or break in pieces.
- This is where Beaux counted out her spinach leaves and asparagus, she also made a picture with her food pretending the leaves were other fish and the spears were the sea bed and used her imagination sprinkling the leaves like “magic”.
- Once we’d got all the ingredients placed nicely together, we wrapped it up in the foil and placed it in the over. No idea on heat as our gage is buggered but it was in for about 20 mins on med-high. (But you can check after a period by breaking up the salmon and seeing if it’s cooked through)
- In the last 5 minutes we added a vine of tomatoes under the grill, we counted how many were attached before they went in.
- We followed the instructions for the hollandaise and the plated everything together, removing the salmon skin and vine before they went on the plate.
We usually pan fry the salmon so it was such a nice change to texture and taste and something we will definitely chose over frying more often in the future. Again, you could change up the veg/sauce depending on preference. Parsley sauce would be lush!
