Ingredients

For the marinade

  • 4 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Kikkoman soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 inch of root ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives

Method

Put all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and add the salmon. Cover and transfer to the fridge to marinade for at least 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Toss the sliced fennel with a little olive oil and spread in an even layer over the bottom of an ovenproof dish. Roast for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, then remove from the oven. Lay the salmon fillets on top of the fennel and spoon the marinade over. Return to the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.
