There is little like a fresh piece piece of Cape salmon covered in toasted sesame seeds for a hot summers day meal. this recipe is so easy and so quick it’s hard to believe.

Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
Sea salt

Line a baking tray with alluminium foil, place the fish on the foil and give them a grind of salt. Then squeeze over the lemon juice and sprinkle over the sesame seeds.

Bake for 15 or 20 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon, until the salmon is cooked through and the sesames seeds are beautifully browned and toasty.

Simply place on a bed of the shredded raw vegetables and you are done.

salmon has so many health benefits that we should be eating a lot more of it, it’s failry expensive so save it for a special occasion. And for the guys out there, what could be easier to impress a lady?

A great dessert for this recipe is to make this Warm cherry sauce served with some good vanilla ice cream.
