Succulent Spice-Roasted Salmon

These little salmon bites are something I’ve made time and time again over the years and this method of roasting them at a high temperature ensures you get a little charring on the outside yet perfectly cooked salmon on the inside. Leftovers make a great addition to your lunch box the next day too.

  • 500g skinless salmon fillet, cut into 4cm cubes

For the marinade:

  • 4 tablespoons Greek yoghurt

To serve:

  • tortilla wraps

Preheat your oven to its highest setting (with fan if it has one). Line a baking tray with baking paper. Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Add the salmon and turn until well coated in the marinade.

Spread the salmon out on the prepared baking tray and roast for 10 minutes until cooked through. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with tortilla wraps, tomatoes, finely sliced onion, coriander leaves and Greek yoghurt.
