Salmon is such a fantastic fish, it really doesn't need much help at all to be delicious, but I'm a sucker for lovely fresh herbs and I couldn't resist - plus they make the fish look pretty good, too! Slashing the fish like this and stuffing the herbs inside means they really get in contact with the meat, giving it a real depth of flavour. What's great about this dish is that it's just as good cold as it is hot, so cook it ahead of time and serve at room temperature if you fancy.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
