    • 1kg whole salmon fillet, skin removed (your Morrisons fishmonger can do this for you)

    • GF

      75g breadcrumbs

    • 1 orange, grated zest and juice

    • 3 tbsp chopped mint

    • 2 tbsp olive oil

    • Salt and pepper

  • Directions

    Preheat the oven to 160C fan/180C/gas 4.

    Place the salmon fillet on a large baking tray or roasting tin. Trim the fillet if needed.

    Cover the baking tray loosely with tin foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.

    Meanwhile, place the breadcrumbs, mint, olive oil, salt and pepper into a mixing bowl.

    Zest the orange into the mixing bowl. Cut three slices of orange and set to one side for garnish. Squeeze the juice from the remaining orange into the mixing bowl.

    Stir well to combine.

    Once the salmon has cooked for 30 minutes remove from the oven. Discard the tin foil and sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the salmon. Cut the reserved orange slices in half and arrange on top of the breadcrumbs.

    Bake in the preheated oven for a further 20 minutes. Ensure the salmon is cooked by checking the thickest part is piping hot.
