  • 1 piece salmon tail piece
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup flour plain
  • ½ cup milk full cream
  • ½ cup peas frozen, corn and capsicum
  • ¼ cup cheese grated
  • ¼ cup parsley chopped
  1. Preheat your oven to 200 °C/400 °F
  2. Put the salmon on some baking paper on a baking tray
  3. Add the frozen vegetables around the salmon
  4. Put the salmon and vegetables into the oven and cook for 12 minutes
  5. Wait about 6 minutes before making the white sauce so it’s warm when you plate up the salmon
  6. In a saucepan melt the butter, wait for it to start foaming
  7. While whisking the butter, add the flour and whisk briskly so the butter and flour becomes smooth
  8. Keep whisking until the butter and flours starts to change colour
  9. Slowly add the milk and whisk
  10. Judge the amount of milk knowing that the cheese will also thicken the sauce
  11. Vary the heat to allow the sauce to remain liquid
  12. Whisk to keep the sauce smooth
  13. Add the cheese and stir through
  14. Turn off the heat
  15. Add the chopped parsley and stir through
  16. When the salmon and vegetables are finished, plate up the salmon and add the vegetables to the plate
  17. Pour over the cheesy parsley white sauce
  18. Shoot a photograph
  19. Eat the meal
  20. Share the photograph on social media (and if you used this recipe please give me a shoutout)

  1. You make cooking look so easy, Gaz. I like to cook pasta and a side of fried veggies each Saturday evening in bulk for 4 weeknights a week. It takes me 1 hour to prep 🙁

    1. When I come home, it is just put some cheese on top and chuck in the microwave 😀 But fresh is always best. But I am just too lazy and tired each day to cook. Props to you 😀 Tomorrow is Friday, I think I might get pizza.

    2. Enjoy, Gaz. I will be looking forward to your weekend photos on IG as usual this weekend 😀 You make weekends look so relaxing.

    3. Thanks Mabel. It’s been many years in the making, but discovering the value of work life balance is so important.
