Jamie Oliver's Fish tray bake

I think the photos say it all about the flavours in this dish. It's obviously not an everyday meal with all those ingredients, but we had friends for dinner last night and the sun was shining, until we had the most almighty storm. It seemed a fitting meal for the occasion. The great thing about this dish is it's all cooked together. I have done something very similar where I roasted potatoes in the same dish, just cooking them for a little while before the salmon goes in. Last night I served this with some buttered jersey royals. I bought the prawns from Iceland, I didn't realise they had such a good reasonable selection of shellfish. The recipe is from 'Jamies 30 minute meals'.

Serves 4
4 salmon fillets
8 large unpeeled raw tiger prawns (use peeled raw prawns if you don't like the look of the whole thing)
A bunch of asparagus, woody ends snapped off.
1 lemon, quartered
4 garlic cloves, crushed with skins on
1 30g tin of anchovies in oil
Small bunch of basil
3 – 4 tomatoes, roughly chopped
4 slices of pancetta
1 fresh red chilli

Place the salmon and the prawns in a large roasting tray.
Snap the woody ends off the asparagus and scatter over and around salmon seasoning with salt and pepper.
Place in the lemon.  Finely chop the chilli and add to the tray with the basil leaves. 
Pour the oil from the anchovy tin over all ingredients, then place in the anchovy fillets.
Drape in the pancetta over the fillets and crush in 4 unpeeled garlic cloves.
Roughly chop the tomatoes and add.Drizzle with olive oil.
Bake at about 190⁰C for 20 minutes or until fish is cooked to your liking.
