  • assortment of citrus fruits, thinly sliced (we used 1 grapefruit, 1 orange, 2 lemons and 2 limes), plus 200ml citrus juice (from any of the above fruit)
  • 4 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • small pack dill, chopped
  • 800g fillet of salmon, deboned and skinned



    With its delicate, sweet flesh and wide availability, salmon is one of the most popular fish.…


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Pour the citrus juice, honey and mustard into a saucepan and boil rapidly until reduced to a sticky sauce.

  2. Arrange the sliced fruit in the bottom of a casserole dish and scatter it with half the dill. Season the salmon fillet and put it on top of the fruit, then brush with the sticky sauce. Bake for 20 mins until the salmon is cooked though. Scatter with more dill before serving.

Yuk, this was so sweet and "citrusy", it overpowered the delicate flavour of the salmon. I'm so disappointed as it was expensive. I also found that the cooking time was much longer than the stated 20 minutes. I had high hopes for a simple fast supper!

Made this tonight and will be making it again. Easy to do and tasted tremendous. This is now my favourite salmon recipe!
