This oven-baked salmon recipe is delicious as is but would make a filling meal when paired with a warm whole-grain salad or a crisp green salad. It’s so simple to make, it will surprise you how good it can be.

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1.5kg whole side of salmon (1 large fillet)
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves, torn
  • 1 lemongrass stalk, quartered and bruised
  • Salt and pepper, to season
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh coriander leaves, plus extra to serve

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Place a sheet of aluminium foil, slightly overlapping, on a large baking dish. Lightly grease and place the salmon.
  3. Top the salmon with lemon, kaffir lime, lemongrass and coriander then season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bring the two long sides of foil up to centre and fold to seal. Roll up the ends to ensure the salmon is enclosed and secured.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes to achieve medium doneness or until cooked to your liking.
  6. Remove from the oven. Let it cool to room temperature then serve to table with fresh coriander leaves. You may substitute parsley for a mild herb flavour.
  7. If serving for later, cover the baking dish with a lid or cling wrap and refrigerate. Reheat in the oven or microwave when you’re ready to eat.
