Baked salmon with herb and walnut salsa

This beautiful baked salmon recipe was a must when Deborah Hutton was selecting recipes for her new book, 'Entertaining Made Easy'. After featuring it on The Australian Women's Weekly's TV Chistmas special, it has become a favourite on her Christmas table ever since.
Salmon with herb & walnut salsa



1.Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Line a large oven tray with baking paper.
2.Place the salmon, skin-side down, on oven tray and brush with 2 tablespoons of the oil. Season well. Cook salmon for 10–15 minutes or until cooked to your liking. It will continue to cook after it is taken out of the oven, so it should be removed from the oven slightly underdone.
3.Meanwhile, combine the remaining oil in a medium bowl with parsley, dill, nuts, garlic, capers, rind and juice.
4.Transfer the salmon to a serving platter; sprinkle with the herb and walnut mixture and drizzle with a little extra oil. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.

Serve with a garden salad.
