Serves 1
Preparation time 10 minutes
Cooking time 20 minutes
Preheat the oven to 180 C, 350 F, Gas 4


  • 1 salmon steak about 6oz [180gm],
  • 1 small sprig of fresh tarragon or parsley,
  • 1 small bay leaf,
  • 1 thin slice of lemon,
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste,
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar.

Wash and dry the salmon. Place on a sheet of foil which is large enough to completely enclose the salmon. Put a small sprig of tarragon or parsley on top of it, along with a bay leaf and a slice of lemon and season with salt and pepper and finally spoon a tablespoon of white wine vinegar over it.

Wrap up the salmon in the foil and seal well. Place in a roasting pan on the top shelf of the oven and bake for exactly 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let sit for 20 minutes without opening the foil package. When you are ready to serve the salmon, undo the foil and using a sharp knife ease off the strip of skin around the edge of steak and discard it.  Remove the herbs and lemon; transfer the fish to a serving dish.
