CEDAR WRAPPED SALMON WITH ROAST RED PEPPER AND TOMATO CHERMOULA
Chermoula is a North African spice mix usually used with chicken. By toning the spice intensity down with red peppers and tomato, the mix works well with salmon.
Sweat the spices in the oil on low heat for about 5 minutes.
Add the roast pepper, tomatoes, vinegar and lemon juice.
Cook until tomatos are soft. Remove from heat.
Add the garlic chives and coriander. Salt to taste.
Follow the instructions for wrapping salmon in cedar paper, adding a tablespoon of the Chermoula sauce to the top of the salmon before enclosing and tying off.
Bake in a preheated oven (220°C) for 8-12 minutes.
Serve with couscous and steamed green vegetables.
