This will really knock your socks off!
This is a fab way to make three salmon fillets feed 4-6 people depending on your sides, we have this with a quinoa salad to fill the boys up!
I make a salad base of mixed leaves, avocado slices, coriander and I finish the salmon off with a squeeze of lime juice. By breaking the fillets up it goes so much further in our house!
You can make this ahead of time and just let the salmon sit in the fridge in the rub and leftovers make brilliant sandwich fillings.
3 large skinless salmon fillets, around 700g
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
1 tablespoon sweet paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Centigrade, line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
Wash and pat dry the salmon, check for bones and I like to remove the fatty underside too.
Combine the herbs, spices and salt on a plate.
Turn each salmon fillet over in the spice mix until thoroughly coated, place on the baking sheet and repeat.
Bake in the oven for 7-10 minutes depending on thickness.
