For those of you who haven't noticed it's hot, and I for one am not in the slightest bit interested in all the traditional nonsense of Christmas. Take a large salmon, ask the fishmonger to remove the head, fins and scales, bake it in the oven and serve with new potatoes with chopped mint and a drizzle of olive oil, a crisp green salad with sliced avocado and a cool refreshing mango and coriander salsa. If you want to be more decadent decorate fresh prawns around the outside - what could be nicer, and how much better knowing it's good for you.
3 kg whole salmon, cleaned and scaled with the head removed
1 cup white wine
¼ cup fresh chervil, chopped
¼ cup fresh mint, chopped
¼ cup fresh dill, chopped
¼ cup fresh chives, chopped
1 lime juiced
2 tbsp olive oil
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Lay the fish on a large sheet of baking foil with plenty of foil around the outside to wrap it up in a tight parcel. Fill the inside of the fish with fresh herbs. Mix the wine, olive oil and lime juice and pour it over the fish. Secure the foil around the fish and bake for 1 hour. Set aside to rest in the foil for a further 10 minutes before serviing.
