Samaki wa Kupika Kwa Mvuke Kwenye Oven (Oven-Steamed Salmon With Mushrooms)
4 Salmon fillets - Serving 4
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive
1 pound white or portobello mushrooms, rinsed briefly, wiped dry and sliced
1-3 tablespoons thyme chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Wash and dry the salmon fillets and the mushrooms.
Sprinkle each salmon with half of salt and pepper.
Use 4 large pieces of aluminum foil – large enough to comfortably wrap around each piece of salmon and mushrooms alone.
Place the thyme sprigs in the center of the foil; put the salmon on the foil, and surround it with the mushroom slices.
Drizzle everything with olive oil, sprinkling of salt and pepper on top and pinch the foil together so the salmon is totally encased and no air can escape.
Bake in the oven until cooked through, about 20 to 30 minutes. Save while hot.
