Baked Salmon with Broad Bean Salsa


A zesty salsa with fish will win me over time and time again. Here, broad beans work beautifully with the simple flavours of herbs and lemon to create a perfect plate for warmer days. I have suggested you pod the broad beans from their grey-green skins, but if they are small and tender, you can skip this step to save time.

  • 2 fillets of organic salmon
  • Light olive oil, for rubbing
  • 200g of podded broad beans (weight with grey skins on)
  • ¼ cucumber (90g), deseeded and finely diced
  • ¼ medium red onion, finely diced
  • The 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

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

Rub a little olive 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.

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.

Serve with the fish and a drizzle of olive oil on top.
