Easy 20 Minute Dinner: Miso Maple Salmon

by Eat

A couple of years ago someone bought me Jamie Oliver’s book “15-Minute Meals” and in all honestly, most of them took me a solid 30 – 45 minutes to make. I know that sounds like me being impatient, but when I get home at the end of a long day, I’m hungry and want dinner on the table ASAP!

In true Jamie Oliver style I “banged this one together” with a few ingredients I had on hand, whacked it in the oven and voila – 20 minutes later I had a cracking dinner on the table (I hope you read that in his British accent too). Seriously though this dish is easy peasy, only costs a coupla quid, and is destined to be a family favourite. Ok, ok I’ll stop stealing his words now.

  • 2 x 180g Salmon Fillets
