Baked Salmon Parcels

Serves 3 Takes 15 mins to cook Takes  20 mins to prepare


3 salmon fillets, with the bones removed

3 heaped tbsp chopped fresh herbs (either tarragon, basil or dill mixed with parsley is a good combination)

15 cherry tomatoes, quartered

1 lemon, half sliced and the remaining half cut into wedges


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Make 3 double thickness squares of kitchen foil, large enough to wrap up each piece of fish and put a salmon fillet in the middle of each, checking for bones. Scatter with the mixed fresh herbs, halved tomatoes and halved lemon slices.
  2. Scrunch up the foil to enclose the salmon fillets like a parcel, then put on a baking tray. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes, then rest for 2-3 minutes before opening. If your salmon is still slightly under cooked, simply re-scrunch the parcels and put back into the oven for a further 2-3 minutes.
  3. Cut the salmon parcels up and divide between plates.

Serve with mashed potato and green beans.
