Oven-Salmon with Spicy Sauce and Vegetables

Sorry for my longish blog-silence but the last weeks have just been crazy. Too much work, too little time to take care of this space. But I found a moment to prepare some easy-to-make recipes. For instance, this one: salmon fillets cooked in the oven, with a side-helping of a very spicy and tasty sauce and served with vegetables. I don’t like to waste food; this sauce was a wonderful means of using up a part of those spicy-hot chili peppers from the French Antilles I had bought the other day.

What you need:
  • Salmon fillets (1-2 per person, with skin) 
  • Turmeric powder 
  • Garlic powder 
  • Oregano 
  • Salt, pepper 
  • Olive oil 
  • 2-3 big shallots 
  • Half a spicy-hot chili pepper 
  • 100 ml of cream 
  • Vegetables (frozen or fresh) such as peas, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower etc. 
How to proceed: 
  • Spread the salmon fillets, skin down, in an ovenproof plate. 
  • Add some turmeric powder, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper on each fillet. 
  • Drizzle some olive oil over the fillets. 
  • Put in the oven at a low temperature (150-170°C), for 30-40 minutes. Thus, the salmon fillets will be perfectly cooked without becoming too dry. 
  • Cut the shallots and the spicy-hot chili pepper. 
  • Stir-fry them in a drizzle of olive oil until the shallots become transparent. 
  • Add the cream, lower the heat. 
  • Add salt and pepper and let the sauce simmer for 10-15 minutes. 
  • For the vegetables, I chose frozen peas and a mixture of broccoli, carrots and cauliflower. I simply stir-fried them in a drizzle of olive, adding but a pinch of salt and some pepper. 
  • Serve the salmon fillets with their side-helpings of sauce and veggies. 
Simple yet very tasty. Spicy without anesthetizing your mouth.  
Bon app├ętit!
