      Chilli Ginger Lime Salmon Parcels

      Cook time: 15-20 mins        Prep time: 10mins        Serves: 2 people

      Ingredients

      • 2 fillets fresh salmon
      • 1 bunch asparagus
      • 2 tbsp lime juices
      • 1cm root ginger (grated)
      • 1 tsp olive oil
      • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
      • 1 red chilli (deseeded and chopped into tiny pieces)
      • Black pepper

      Method

      1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C for fan oven).
      2. In a bowl, mix together the lime juice, ginger, oil, garlic, chilli and a dash of black pepper.
      3. Prepare two pieces of tin foil big enough to make a parcel around each fillet.
      4. Place a fillet of salmon (skin side down) on the middle of each piece of tin foil and place on a baking tray.
      5. Place the asparagus around the fillets.
      6. Fold up the edges of the foil to prevent the marinade leaking.
      7. Pour the marinade over both fillets. Crack a bit more black pepper over the top of each fillet.
      8. Scrunch the foil edges together to create a loose parcel of each fillet.
      9. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes.
      10. Remove from oven and check if thoroughly cooked (fish flakes easily and is a pale pink colour right through).
