Top tips

You don’t need to cover the salmon or wrap it in tin foil – the layer of Dijon mustard helps to keep it moist.

Before buying, check your salmon to ensure it’s been sustainably sourced. Look for the blue symbol which states it’s certified sustainable food by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
