Serves 4

Ingredients

4 salmon fillets, I prefer skinless

2 cloves of garlic

½ bunch of coriander

2 shallots

Soy sauce

Lemon

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180⁰C.
  2. Place each of the salmon fillets on a separate sheet of aluminum foil, big enough to wrap.
  3. Crush and mince the garlic. Chop the coriander and the shallots finely. Divide the garlic, coriander and shallots into four and place one part on each of the four salmon fillets.
  4. Pour a table spoon of soy sauce and squeeze some lemon onto each of the fillets.
  5. Fold the sides of the foil sheet over the salmon, so that the whole fillet is covered. Place the parcels on a baking tray and bake for approximately 20 minutes. You may need to adjust the baking time depending on your oven and the thickness of the salmon fillet.
  6. Once cooked, unwrap the salmon and serve with rice and steamed veggies or your choice of salad.

Variations

The reason I love this recipe is because it’s easy and because I can create different variations without any extra work. My son loves coriander, but he won’t eat garlic and shallots and I only season his parcel with coriander, soy sauce and lemon. My girls won’t have anything green on their fish, so I skip the shallots and the coriander for them. My husband and I go for the full taste. Everyone gets their custom-made meal.

It doesn’t get any easier than that!
