Salmon and cabbage bake is a perfect weeknight dinner idea - made using only a handful of ingredients, it's quick, easy and absolutely delicious!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4 people
- 500 g salmon cut into pieces (I used 4), skinned
- 1 large sweetheart cabbage
- 2 tablespoons dill finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Juice of 1/2 lime
- Sea salt and white pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons butter
Place the salmon pieces on a large plate, season and drizzle generously with the lime juice. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 425 F/ 220 C/ gas mark 7. You will need a medium oven dish.
Cut the cabbage in half lengthways and then each piece again in half lengthways. Slice each piece into approx. 1 cm thick strips.
In a large pot heat up the oil, add the cabbage and cook for a couple of minutes over a medium/high heat stirring constantly. Add the dill, season to taste and continue cooking for 5 more minutes stirring often.
Transfer the cabbage into the oven dish, place the salmon pieces on top (including the lime marinade if there is any left on the plate), pressing gently, put a few small knobs of butter on the fish pieces and cover the dish with tin foil.
Bake for 20 minutes (±2 minutes, depending on how thick your salmon is). Serve with potatoes, pasta, rice or a slice of crusty bread.
