  • zest and juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tbsp capers, roughly chopped if large
  • 1 tbsp good olive oil
  • a few handfuls of herbs, chives, mint, parsley, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Step-by-Step

1. Pre heat oven to 220/200fan and line a small baking tray with foil.

2. Rub a little coconut or avocado oil on the salmon, season and place skin side up on the baking tray. Cook for 15 minutes. If you like crispy skin, finish under a hot grill for 1-2 minutes, but keep a close eye on it.

3. While the fish is cooking, blanch the broad beans in boiling water for 5 minutes then refresh in ice cold water. Remove the grey skins and put in a bowl along with the rest of the salsa ingredients, stir gently and season to taste.
