Gulten Free Roast Salmon with Crushed Peas

It’s a beautiful Spring day in Dublin, definitely one of our warmest this year.  The temperature on my car was hitting 17 degrees centrigade, which is a blessing so early on in April.

My inspiration for my dinner tonight, was a simple one.  I was shopping this morning and spotted this:

Fresh Basil Naturally Gluten Free

I love the freshness that Basil gives to a meal.  I bought this in Lidl for €1.49. It’s now happily sitting on my windowsill for multiple uses during the week.  I was wondering what I could put with this as Mr Coeliacpages wasn’t home for dinner and I wanted something quick to cook.  So, I opted for Salmon.  It’s one of my favourite fish meals.  I roast it in the oven at 180 for no more than 10 minutes.  I hate salmon that is overcooked and has lost that beautiful softness.

I simply dotted some butter along with salt and pepper before putting into the pre-heated oven.

When the salmon went into the oven I boiled the  kettle to pour onto the frozen petite pois.  These cook in less than two minutes, so I quickly prepared the salad and a bit of basil to put through the peas that I lightly crushed with a potato masher.

I love a good salad dressing.  One of my favourite finds is ‘Mary Berry’s’.  It has the right amount of sweetness and pepper for my taste.

This is a dinner that is prepared really quickly and has a nice lightness but yet filling.

Sometimes, food that is naturally gluten free,  is as quick to cook as any other convenience food.  I had prep, cooking and serving completed in 20 minutes.

Enjoy.
