Christmas food ideas #3: Salmon Tray Bake

Forget creamy pasta bakes, lets lay those to rest for the next couple of minutes. It's a salmon fest and I can promise you that its a flavour packed one. This makes a great Christmas dish because its delicious, nutritious and of course, there's only one baking tray to wash up. Hooray! We all know washing up is one of the worst things that come with cooking. This is an impeccable mix of vegetables and gorgeous flavoured salmon in one, a dish that can be enjoyed by the whole family this Christmas.
