Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

One Tray Roast Salmon

You know how I love a one tray. This one is ready in 30 minutes and is put together in less than 5. I’ve lined my roasting tin here with baking parchment so there is literally no washing up. Using a large single fillet of salmon such as this one from Sankey’s Fishmongers in Tonbridge, you have a meal for 4 simply by adding potatoes and asparagus. I’ve stirred through samphire too for the last 5 minutes of cooking time. The saltiness of the capers together with the lemons which caramelise and become really sweet work brilliantly together.

Prep: 5 minutes
Cooking: 37 minutes

20g dill

2 tbsp capers

Olive oil


Roast your jersey royals and sliced lemons for 25 minutes with some olive oil.
