Salmon pepperonata : Wk49/4

Serves 4 : Very easy : Quick
4 salmon steaks, each ±120gm
Juice and grated rind of 1 lemon
1 red onion, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 yellow/green pepper, sliced
2 Tblsp seedless raisins
1 Tblsp capers, rinsed and chopped
2 Tblsp red wine vinegar

480gms new potatoes, scrubbed and halved
500gm broccoli florets

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Lay the salmon on the baking tray and sprinkle over the lemon juice and rind.
Heat the oven to ±200ºC.

Put the potatoes on to cook in lightly salted boiling water.
Cook the broccoli on a steaming rack above the potatoes.
Drain when cooked and keep warm.

Bake the salmon for about 15 minutes, or until it flakes easily.

Spray a small pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Dry fry the onion until it starts to soften.
Now add the peppers, cover and cook gently for about 5 minutes.
Tip in the capers, raisins and vinegar and stir well.
Simmer gently for 5 minutes to reduce the liquid.

Serve the salmon topped with the pepperonata with the vegetables on the side.

I think the pepperonata is sweet enough with the raisins, but you can add a teaspoon of dark brown sugar, if you like.
