Oven Roasted Salmon
Oven Roasted Salmon
  • 1 (1.5kg) side of salmon (skin on), pin-boned
  • 1 tbs maple syrup (substitute runny honey)
  • 150g Kewpie mayonnaise
  • 2 tbs Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 1/2 tsp each ground cumin & coriander
  • 1/4 bunch dill, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 bunch flat-leaf parsley, leaves picked, roughly chopped
  • Zest of 2 lemons, plus extra lemon halves to serve


Preheat oven to 250°C. Grease a large oven tray big enough to fit the side of salmon and line with baking paper. Place salmon, skin- side down, on tray, and season liberally.

Place maple syrup, mayonnaise, mustard, garlic and spices in a small bowl. Season to taste, and stir to combine. Spread half of the mixture evenly over the fish and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked to your liking.

Remove from oven and rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, place the herbs and zest in a bowl and toss gently to combine. Scatter herb mixture over the salmon. Transfer to a large platter and serve with extra lemon halves and remaining mustard and mayonnaise mixture, alongside.
