  • sriracha 4 tbsp
  • lime ½, juiced

  • Step 1

    Coat the salmon fillets in 2 tsp of vegetable oil, put the sesame seeds onto a plate and roll the salmon fillets so they are completely covered. Season well and put onto a baking tray, skin-side down.

    Serve with the salmon fillet on top of the veg and scattered with coriander.
