Ingredients

  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or melted butter
  • chopped herbs, lemon slices and steamed long-stem broccoli, to serve (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Brush each salmon fillet with the oil or butter and season well.

  • STEP 2

    Put the salmon fillets in an ovenproof dish. Cover if you prefer your salmon to be tender, or leave uncovered if you want the flesh to roast slightly.

  • STEP 3

    Roast for 10-15 mins (or about 4 mins per 1cm thickness) until just opaque and easily flaked with a fork. Serve with a sprinkling of chopped herbs, lemon slices and steamed long-stem broccoli, if you like.
