Salmon Casserole

Currently on a bit of a working holiday in Wales and Pete recommended his salmon casserole dish. I’m not a big fan of salmon but this has definitely converted me a bit! It’s a super easy recipe, just a bit lengthy, so prep early if you have a set dinner time.

And of course, it’s naturally gluten free!


new potatoes, halved or third (depending on size)
garlic, finely diced
red onions, quartered
plum cherry tomatoes, halved
green beans
asparagus tips
fresh basil
olive oil
balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper


Oven on 200 (celcius) and add the new potatoes into a casserole dish, and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes.

Add the garlic and red onion. Cook for a further 10 minutes until the potatoes are nice and brown.

Add the tomatoes and beans and splash the balsamic in. Nestle in the salmon and add a tad of olive oil, salt and pepper. Cook for 15 minutes.

Add the asparagus on top and cook for a further 8-10 minutes.

Sprinkle the basil and serve.

Rambling in Riga

November meant it was time for me and Dan to go on our annual overseas (Christmas) trip. I have always wanted to go to the Baltics after seeing a lot of photos from friends who had been, so cheap flight prices saw us heading to Riga. The cheap flight did mean we had to be up at sparrow’s fart to make the departure so we decided to stay at the Hampton by Hilton which is right next door to Stansted Airport. I booked an accessible room which was huge. It had a big double bed (it was quite high) and a pull out sofa – the mattress was shit not the best. I shotgunned the bed as I was about to spend a week on a couch and Dan had to make do with the couch.
