Call me lazy but I love this type of cooking because it’s quick way of creating something really special and nutritious without a crazy amount of washing up to do after!⁠

Serves 2⁠


2 (120g each) salmon fillets, pat dried⁠

Drizzle of oil⁠

Salt, to taste⁠ (pepper, optional)

Micro coriander

Knob of butter ⁠

Few saffron strands⁠

1. Preheat the oven to 180C fan. Lay two sheets of tin foil, large enough to bag each fillet, on the surface.⁠

2. Place each salmon fillet in the centre of the sheets, drizzle not more than a teaspoon of oil over each and season.⁠

3. Bag each fillet ensuring there are no holes for air to escape. Place these bags on an oven proof dish/ tray and bake in the oven for about 15-20 mins until the fish is cooked through.⁠

4. Meanwhile, place a small saucepan over a low-med heat and throw in a knob of butter and gently allow to melt. Once melted, add in the saffron strands and cook over a low heat for 2-3mins.⁠

Pour the warm saffron infused butter sauce over the salmon just before serving and garnish with some micro herbs. I served this with a side of coconutty green beans - recipe can be found @sonasfoodjournal
