Ingredients
  • 1 side of salmon, about 1.3kg
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 1-2 red chillies, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • Sugar snap, to serve
  • Peas, to serve
  • Broccoli, to serve
  • Green beans, to serve
  • New potatoes, to serve
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Put the salmon on a piece of foil or baking paper large enough to wrap it in a loose parcel.

  • Mix the soy sauce, lemon juice, honey and sesame oil and brush over the fish. Set aside for 20 minutes, brushing with the marinade every 5 minutes.

  • Drizzle over the rest of the soy mixture, then sprinkle on the spring onions and chill.

  • Fold the foil or baking paper to make a parcel with tightly sealed edges (leave enough room inside for the air to circulate). Cook in the oven for 25 minutes or until the fish flakes easily.

  • Cut the salmon into six portions and serve with the sugar snap peas, broccoli, green beans and new potatoes.
