Cheesy Sweet Potato, Salmon And Broccoli Traybake

Cheesy Sweet Potato, Salmon And Broccoli Traybake

I am always on the look-out for one-pot wonder recipes or meals that don't involve a mountain of dishes to be washed up after. I am also generally looking for nice meal ideas that include fish. Omega 3 is very important for our children's health and Salmon is an excellent source of it for the whole family. 
 
I made this dish during the week and everyone licked their plates. It was simple to prepare, super healthy and there was just one tray to clean after. I picked up the Salmon on Special Offer too. Now that's what I call Family Cooking. 
 
This recipe serves four but can be adapted to suit more mouths of course. 
 
You Will Need:
 
4 Salmon Fillets 
3 Sweet Potatoes
1 Head Of Broccoli 
One cup of grated Cheddar Cheese 
2 Tablespoons Plain Flour 
300 Ml Milk
Salt/Pepper and Mixed Herbs To Taste 
 
Method:
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and slice them width ways in to thick coin shaped pieces. 
  • Layer the bottom of the tray with a drizzle of olive oil and the sweet potato pieces.
  • Place the tray in an oven at a medium heat and cook for 15-20 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile chop up the broccoli in to florets (you can also use frozen broccoli) and add them to a pot of boiling water. Allow it to simmer until broccoli begins to soften slightly. 
  • Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and add the fillets of salmon, side by side
  • Layer the Broccoli on top and return the oven for 15 minutes
  • Meanwhile make the sauce. Add the flour to the milk along with half the cheese and stir.       .
  • Then microwave for 2 minutes. Stir and add some salt, pepper and herbs of your choice.
  • It will result in a thick and creamy cheese sauce. 
  • Remove the tray from the oven and cover the contents with the sauce.
  • Sprinkle remaining  cheese over the top and place back in the oven for a further ten minutes.
