Serves 2

See the recipe for Serves 4 here
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil 
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves 
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika 
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed 
  • 2 x 120g skinless salmon fillets  
  • 1 small (200g) eggplant, cut into 1cm-thick slices 
  • 2 small zucchini, cut into 2cm-thick slices 
  • ½ large red capsicum, cut into 2cm-thick strips 
  • ½ red onion, cut into 2cm-thick wedges 
  • 2 teaspoons pine nuts 
  • ¼ cup tzatziki dip 
  • 1 x 31g wholemeal pita pocket bread, halved 
  • Mint leaves and lemon wedges, to serve  
  1. Mix oil, oregano, paprika and garlic in a small bowl.  
  2. Place salmon on a large plate. Rub 1 teaspoon of the oil mixture over the top of fillets. Cover and set aside.  
  3. Combine eggplant, zucchini, capsicum and onion in a medium roasting pan. Drizzle with remaining oil mixture and toss well to lightly coat. Spread vegetables in an even layer. Bake vegetables in a preheated 220°C oven (fan-forced) for 20 minutes.  
  4. Remove pan from oven. Turn vegetables. Sit salmon fillets on top. Scatter over pine nuts. Return to same oven. Bake for a further 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender and salmon is cooked to your liking.  
  5. Sprinkle with mint leaves. Serve with tzatziki, pita bread and lemon wedges. 

Tips

  • Check labels on tzatziki dips and choose the brand lowest in sodium. 
  • Replace fresh salmon with thawed frozen salmon fillets or use 480g chicken tenderloins instead, if preferred. Cooking time may vary. 
  • Swap in pepitas or flaked almonds for pine nuts if you like.
