Tamsin Waley-Cohen’s Cumin Crusted Salmon

My family voted for this recipe to be submitted, it’s everyone’s favourite!



Salmon, either fillets or a side

At least 1 lemon

Cumin seeds

Dried thyme

6-8 cloves of garlic

Olive Oil



For a small side of salmon, or approximately 6 fillets, grate the zest of one lemon, combine with a generous handful of cumin seeds and the same quantity of dried thyme.

Crush 6-8 garlic cloves and add a generous couple of pinches of salt, I find a crystal salt like Maldon works best for this recipe.

Add a tablespoon or so of olive oil and a generous squeeze of lemon juice to create a paste.

Lie the salmon skin-down in a baking tray and spread the paste generously and evenly over the flesh of the salmon.

Bake at 180 degrees for 20 minutes and serve!
