  • Dill, stemmed removed and finely chopped
  • 15g tarragon, stems removed, finely chopped
  • 20g chives, finely chopped

  • Preheat oven at 180 degrees.
  • Place the salmon, skin side down on some baking paper in an oven tray. Coat generously with olive oil and salt. Place in oven for 20- 25 minutes, or until you can poke a knife in and it’s just slightly pink in the centre.
  • Combine your herbs in a bowl and toss through before dividing the mixture into 2 separate bowls (one reserved for garnish).
