280 calories per serving 


300 g salmon fillet    
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    
1/4 cup hazelnuts, shelled, or other nuts , ground   26 g
1/2 slice country bread, chopped   22 g
2 tbsp chives, fresh, finely chopped   7 g
2 tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped   7 g
2 tsp mayonnaise, or to taste   10 mL

Before you start

A mill or food processor will be very useful to grind the hazelnuts and bread.


  1. Preheat the oven to 95°C/200°F.
  2. Put the salmon fillet on an oven-proof plate. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Grind the haselnuts and bread, then cover the fish with the mixture.
  3. Place in the middle of the oven and bake for 50-55 min. You can check with a fork to see if the fish is cooked through: It is done when it flakes easily and does not stick to the prongs.
  4. Finely chop the herbs, then put them on top of the fish. Serve with the mayonnaise.
