We eat lots of fish at how2bglutenfree, salmon being a particular favourite.  This recipe starts by cooking the salmon on the hob and then finishes it off, with the asparagus and tomatoes, in the oven.  The tomatoes almost melt in the mouth when cooked this way.  We like the healthiness of this recipe with the touch of richness provided by the sauce.

Easy gluten free recipes don’t come much easier than this, particularly since we do cheat a bit by using ready-made hollandaise sauce.
