“I absolutely love salmon! It takes next to no time to prepare, has a ridiculously good nutritional profile and is completely delicious. This recipe was put together on the fly based on ingredients that I had in my fridge. And it was so good, it’s now one of my go-tos when I’m cooking salmon.”


(This ingredient list will be enough for 1 salmon fillet.)

  • 1 x skinned and boned salmon fillet
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/2 clove of finely diced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • Good pinch or grind of sea/ Himalayan salt


  1. Combine finely chopped herbs in a bowl.
  2. Add garlic, sesame oil, lemon juice and salt. Stir well.
  3. Spread liberally over salmon and bake in a hot oven (180 degrees) for 10 – 12 minutes or until salmon is done to your liking.

I’ve served mine with greens and a sweet potato and carrot puree, but you can just as easily pair this with a salad.
