Recipe: Baked Salmon

Hello & welcome to the easiest, most delicious thing you will ever do with your oven. Baked salmon is so easy a small child could do this, so if you are the kind of person with few to no kitchen skills then this is totally for you. Although even if you're Heston I can't imagine you passing this up.

 You will need (per person):

1 salmon fillet
2-3 slices of lemon
1-2 tbsp of fresh chopped herbs (I've used coriander but basil would be nice too)
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Parchment paper

  1. Preheat your oven to 200.
  2. Cut a few slashes in the top of your salmon as I have done above, and brush with oil.
  3. Stuff the slashes with the herbs & place the lemon slices on top. (At this point I also drizzled on a little soy sauce but this is optional).
  4. Wrap your salmon in parchment & then in tinfoil to keep it all tightly sealed.
  5. Bake on a low shelf in the oven for 20 mins. Once it's done open it careully to let out the steam- don't burn yourself.
Et voila! That's seriously all you have to do. I had mine with some spicy noodles and a G&T, and it was SO AMAZING I could have eaten it twice.

  2. Do you know... I've never eaten salmon?! I used to be a really fussy eater and wouldn't eat fish, but now sea bass is one of my faves ever and I need to try fish a wee bit more! This looks like such an easy recipe, I think I might just have to give it a go xx

    1. I am so obsessed with how good fish is, but my sister used to be a fussy eater too & wouldn't eat any fish. Salmon is her fave now! It's a really good fish to try if you aren't used to eating seafood because it's so full of flavour- you should def try it my love x

  3. That is seriously tasty looking. Salmon (and fish in general) is one of my ultimate favourites. You seriously need to stop giving me so many awesome recipe ideas! I just can't take the awesomeness!
