Ingredients

  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • 1 small bunch flat leaf parsley
  • 10 cloves of fresh garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp crushed chilli flakes
  • cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ¼ lbs fresh green beans ends trimmed
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes halved
  • 3 tsp olive oil divided
  • Juice from one large lemon. quartered
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees (or fire up the grill)
  • Whip up the salsa verde by popping the parsley, garlic, chilli flakes and olive oil into a food processor, and blend until combined but still a little bit chunky
  • Bring a medium sized pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, pop in the green beans for about 3 minutes and then drain and toss in a bowl with 2 tsp olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste
  • Cut four pieces of aluminium foil into about 14-inch lengths
  • Into the foil package lay a quarter of the green beans, top with the salmon and then 1tbsp of the salsa verde mixture - spread it over the whole piece of salmon. Toss the halved tomatoes in the remaining 1 tsp olive oil, and then pop ¼ of the tomatoes on top of each salmon stack
  • Wrap the foil packages and crimp the edges to seal. You don't want to wrap it too tightly, make sure there is room for the air inside to circulate
  • Pop all of the foil packages onto a baking sheet and bake in preheated oven until salmon has cooked through, about 20-25 mins. For grilling tips, see notes (below)
  • Serve and enjoy (see notes)

Notes

If you are planning on grilling this, it works just wonderfully! We have a ceramic grill and it usually takes about 10-15 mins at a high temperature. Adjust depending on the type you are using.
There will be a lovely garlic oil mixture at the bottom of each package - this is delicious drizzled over some freshly cooked pasta which also pairs well with the salmon.
