  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 tbsp fresh marjoram

the quick way

This recipe is pretty straightforward. Rather than reading the instructions, assemble the ingredients then follow the images below to get the idea.

Or the written way

Lay the salmon onto a large piece of tin foil. Sprinkle with salt and some about half of the fresh marjoram. Dill would also work well here, as dill and salmon always work well. Although not pictured, a sliced red onion will go great in this middle layer.

Slice up the carrots and celery into thin 6 inch strips. Lay these on top of the salmon. On top of the veges, sprinkle 1 clove of crushed garlic, the rest of the fresh marjoram, salt and pepper and capers. Put some holes in the chili and add the to the top, and then slices of one of the lemons.

Squeeze the other lemon over the top of the dish, and drizzle a splash of white wine vinegar. Pour olive oil over the top to finish.

Wrap the tin foil around the dish, and seal as best you can. Bake for 15mins in an oven preheated to 220 degrees Celsius.
