Roasted Salmon with Green Salad



Salmon is an oily fish, and I prefer to cook it gently without extra fat, either in a fragrant simmering liquid, i.e poaching it, or in the oven, and then pair it with fresh green leaves and various other vegetables for a refreshing salad.


Preheat oven to 190 Celsiuis and bake:

  • Salmon fillet, 2 portions

Cook for 20 minutes, leave to cool slightly and take skin off (if not done beforehand).

​Meanwhile, for the salad, mix in a bowl:

  • Green salad, 1 pc, leaves delicately separated into smaller pieces - this is best done using your hands and not a knife, washed drained and well using a colander (keep in between kitchen paper sheets in an air tight container in the fridge until further use)

  • Radishes, 4 large pcs, sliced into thin rounds using a mandolin or good knife skills (keep in cold water until further use)

  • Spring Onions, 4 stalks, thinly sliced diagonally

  • Cucumber, 1 small pc, sliced into thin rounds using a mandolin or good knife skills (keep in fridge, in air tight container until further use)

For the dressing, whisk in a bowl whisk or shake in a jar:

  • Horseradish cream, 1 tbsp

  • Rice vinegar, 1 tbsp

  • Olive Oil, 3 tbsp, plus more if too acidic

  • Salt, 1/4 tsp

Gently mix salad with the dressing right before serving, and top with the salmon. Garnish with:

  • Nigella seeds
