Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Line a big roasting tin with baking parchment or foil – this helps to prevent the fish from sticking to the tin as it cooks. Brush the salmon skin with oil and place it, skin-side down, on the paper.
  2. Mix the ground ginger with the paprika, pepper, mustard, honey and 1 tbsp olive oil. Spread it evenly over the fleshy side of the fish.
  3. Roast, uncovered, for about 20 mins until the salmon is cooked through – check by poking a knife into the fillet and making sure the fish flakes easily.
  4. Serve directly from the tin, or use a couple of fish slices to carefully lift the salmon onto a big plate. Slice into portions and serve with lemon wedges on the side.

Delish! Loved the flavours, I used all the marinade on two half fillets for two do we had a good portion and enough for a lunch. Served it with Roopa's new potato & tamarind sauce minted tomatoes and green salad. My husband and I loved it and will definitely repeat.

I cooked this for 18 using two large fillets with mushroom barge and potato barge, every one loved it not a single bit left, highly recommended

brilliant boxing day meal - ready so quickly, so little work, perfect antidote to the culinary rigours of the previous day! Paired with plain boiled charlotte potatoes, carrots and broccoli.

This recipe is so easy but so tasty. I'm looking forward to having cold leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

This dish was delicious. I was making a meal for two so used two salmon fillets rather than a side of salmon. I marinaded the fillets in the sauce for a few hours in the fridge. It was very enjoyable and a lovely change to how we usually have salmon. I served it with the crushed saffron potatoes from the Tandoori spiced bream recipe and vegetables.

I am not a fish eater myself however "my Ladies that do Lunch" most definitely are. I prepared this dish for our most recent gathering and have to say this dish went down a storm devoured by all of them I will certainly be making this very easy and impressive dish again

Really so easy and just so tasty. Served it with tabouleh and everyone had seconds. Would do again, especially when the supermarkets have deals on 1/2 sides of salmon.

This was so easy and so delicious. I did it for fathers day (but writing this review late!), it's become a favourite when we have salmon for a roast on sundays.

Delicious and tangy with a hint of spice that gives the salmon a zing. Very tasty indeed....
