Marinated Baked Salmon

Ingredients:
  • 2 salmon steaks
  • 2 cloves garlic - minced
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • ½ lemon
  • Fresh raw spinach
  • 2 fresh raw leeks
  • Fresh coriander.

Method:
  1. Cut the leeks into approximately 12 chunks.
  2. Steam or boil leeks for about 5 minutes to gently soften.
  3. Rinse and dry the salmon. Place a liberal amount of fresh raw spinach in a shallow oven pan.
  4. Place the softened leeks on top of the spinach. Then place the salmon on top of the leeks.
  5. Mix the olive oil, minced garlic and grated ginger together; then brush it over the fish.
  6. Keep extra amounts of the olive oil mixture on hand to brush the fish throughout the cooking process. Squeeze fresh lemon juice onto the fish and spinach.
  7. Place into pre-heated oven at 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6 for approximately 25 minutes. While cooking, brush the olive oil mixture onto the salmon every 10 minutes. If desired, squeeze over more lemon juice too.
  8. Good if you serve the salmon with Avocado Cream Sauce. If desired, squeeze lemon juice too.
