  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 fresh green chilli
  • Small handful freshly chopped coriander
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice

  1. Mince the garlic cloves and chilli. Put the salmon into a baking tray, sprinkle with lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and bake at 200C in a single layer under the fish flakes, around 10-12 minutes.

  2. Put the peppers, garlic, chilli, corn flour and parmesan into a blender and blitz until smooth. Add the stock and coriander and blitz to blend.
