TIPS FOR MAKING THE RECIPE WELL

  • Quarter the cherry tomatoes, rather than leaving them whole. This dish requires a lot less cooking time than the original baked feta pasta, so this will allow them to cook through and be soft.

  • Double the recipe. This is the perfect meal for one, but turn this into a family meal by adding additional salmon fillets and vegetables and using a bigger baking dish.

 

  • Allow your salmon to reach room temperature before baking it. It helps to take it out of the fridge 15 to 30 minutes before baking. This will help it to cook evenly through.

  • Do the fork check on the salmon. When it’s done cooking, the salmon should be juicy and flake easily with a fork when pressed on top. If it is overcooked, it will look dry or crumble when you cut into it.
