ingredients:

  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 2 to 4 anchovy fillets (optional)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons anchovy oil (from can of anchovies) or olive oil
  • 1 head cauliflower (about 2 pounds), cored and cut into large florets
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets, (6 to 8 ounces each)
  • 4 thin lemon slices, halved, plus 4 wedges, for serving

 

method:

  1. Preheat oven to 230 degrees C. Gather garlic, anchovies (if using), and red-pepper flakes into a pile. Using a chefs knife, coarsely chop; season generously with salt. Using flat side of knife blade, mash mixture into a paste.
  2. Place paste into a large bowl; add oils, and mix to combine. Add cauliflower, and toss to coat. Spread mixture in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast until starting to soften, about 15 minutes.
  3. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Remove baking sheet from oven; push cauliflower to sides, and place fillets in the center. Arrange two half-slices of lemon on each fillet. Return to oven; bake until fish is opaque throughout, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.
