This all in one curry salmon traybake with chickpeas, lentils and spinach has a subtle mild curry flavour and is perfect for a simple midweek meal.
This salmon traybake is easy to bring together but just needs a little extra cooking time to really get the flavours bursting.
If you and your family are anything like mine then whenever I serve salmon I need to ensure that there are plenty of other flavours and textures to accompany it. This traybake fits these demands perfectly and the basic ingredients just seem to work so well together.
It is also a pretty versatile dish. The chickpea and lentil base of this dish makes a great veggie curry and if you are not in the mood for fish then swap it for some chicken or lamb instead.
However, the key ingredient here is the lemon. It just seems to give an additional depth to the dish and adds that extra sourness which works perfectly against the spices. So my advice is don’t forget to add the lemon juice!
The curry salmon traybake is delicious with some extra vegetables on the side. We often have broccoli and green beans alongside a few Indian roast potatoes.
To make the Indian potatoes which you can enjoy with this traybake, simply toss a packet of baby potatoes in some rapeseed oil, a couple of teaspoons of curry powder and black mustard seeds. Cook at 200c for around 45minutes.
