Baked Salmon with Tahini Yoghurt

 
Salmon Tahini Yoghurt baked recipe

This delicious baked salmon recipe is inspired by Ottolenghi and I could eat it all the time.

It's a perfect mid-week meal and ideal for entertaining (and impressing your mates). Minimal clean-up. Max taste. 

Tahini (ground sesame paste) is a pantry staple in my kitchen. It's amazing how often I find an excuse to use it. It's an incredibly good source of healthy fats so I'll often add it to my breakfast bowls or use it as a dressing on salads

Salmon has always been one of my favorite foods (chocolate takes out first place)! I always buy Huon Salmon from Tasmania's Huon Valley. 

This recipe goes so well with the Smashed Sweet Potato Garlic Bites and Baked Asparagus with pine nuts and feta. Use up all the ingredients (less waste) and they are all baked.
