Oven Baked Salmon with Garlic Ghee, Jacket Potato and Peas or Green Beans

Oven Baked Salmon with Garlic Ghee, Jacket Potato and Peas or Green Beans

Nowadays when we visit the seaside we always try to find a fish and chip shop for lunch. Although we do have to find a gluten free restaurant for me. So there have been times we’ve been unable to eat by the sea due to a lack of facilities. My husband Howard, son Ted and I love a fish and chip meal. The food is probably the main reason we go to the seaside. When we enjoy lunches like fish and chips I always try to include it at some point in the weekly menu.

Ok, so I’ve never made battered fish but I do enjoy experimenting with different toppings. Ted and I love garlic and ghee so I thought I would try this topping on a piece of salmon. Plus instead of chips I cooked sweet jacket potatoes. I thought of this dish while thinking about the last meal we ate when we went to the seaside. The results were amazing and it’s a recipe I wanted to share with you.

Oven Baked Salmon with Garlic Ghee, Jacket Potato and Peas or Green Beans

Oven Baked Salmon with Garlic Ghee, Jacket Potato and Peas or Green Beans was a huge hit with my little family. The sweet jacket potatoes made a delicious change from the usual chips or rice I serve with salmon. Plus the garlic ghee butter made the fish really tasty. The roasted garlic brought out the sweetness in the salmon and the ghee add extra creaminess to the dish. It was a very simple that was easy to cook and tasted delicious. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
