Easy salmon potato and broccoli traybake

And the fishy obsession continues! I promise, if you are new here, there aren’t normally quite as many fish dishes on here! Not 3 in a row, anyway…

This was a super easy traybake that I posted on YouTube and I forgot to pop here too from a few weeks back. In terms of things we eat a lot – this is pretty high up the list. It’s not a particularly swish or inventive dish. But it’s a dead easy supper – and everyone really likes it. Roasted broccoli is the absolute bees’ knees by the way – if you haven’t tried it before, you’re in for a lovely surprise. It’s transformed when roasted, a bit like cauliflower is.

We serve ours with mayo, and if we have the energy maybe a salad too.

I call it my lifesaver salmon as I often chuck it together (literally) whilst sipping a glass of wine after swimming on a Thursday. (What is it about little one’s swimming lessons that is so stressful!? I think it’s the heat as you wrestle them out then back into their uniforms and you are in a thick jumper and padded winter coat.)

Anyway, here is the recipe – and the video below.

Makes: enough for 4 adults
Takes: 40 mins approx


  • 750g waxy potatoes (Charlotte are perfect), sliced into halves or wedges – the same size
  • 1 head broccoli, stalks diced and florets halved2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Seasoning – salt and pepper or whatever you fancy
  • 4 x salmon fillets (leave skin on and peel off or use skinless)
  • Mayo, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 190C.
  2. Chop potatoes and roast in a little oil for 10 mins.
  3. Add chopped broccoli, toss and roast for 20 mins, tossing one time to ensure even cooking.
  4. Oil and season salmon fillets and add, skin side up, to roasting tray, on top of veggies. Bake for 12 mins.
  5. Remove skin – or keep if you want, but I don’t think it’s crispy enough – feel free to crisp up in a pan. My daughter loves fish skin and eats it like this though!
