Serves: 4 

  • 5-cm piece fresh root ginger
  • 12 sprigs coriander
  • 2 limes
  • 125g butter
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 4 salmon fillets, about 185g each

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Peel and slice the ginger and put into a food processor. Put some sprigs of coriander aside and add the rest to the ginger. Cut 1 lime into wedges for a garnish. Grate the rind of the other, squeeze the juice, and add to the mixing bowl with the butter, salt, pepper and cayenne, then blend.
  2. Shape the butter into a sausage, wrap in foil and chill in the freezer.
  3. In the meantime, brush a baking tray with a little oil, place the salmon fillets on it and brush with the remaining oil. Sprinkle with salt and bake for 8 minutes, or until the flesh flakes easily.
  4. Take the butter from the freezer and cut into thick rounds. Transfer the fish to four plates, place a round of butter on each and garnish with the lime and coriander.


Serve with couscous, which you can leave to soak while you cook the salmon.
