Festive Season Salmon
3 oranges sliced
1 lemon, sliced
8 sprigs thyme, plus 1 tablespoon thyme leaves
1 skin-on salmon fillet (enough to feed 8 )
1 1/2 tbsp. pure honey
1 tbsp. fennel seeds, crushed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Slice 1 orange. Arrange sliced orange, lemon, and thyme sprigs in the centre of a baking sheet. Top with salmon, skin side down.
2. Grate the zest from 1 orange into a measuring cup, then squeeze in the juice from both remaining oranges (you should get about 1/4 cup). Add honey and whisk until dissolved. Brush salmon with half of the orange mixture, then sprinkle with fennel and thyme leaves. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes.
3. Brush salmon with the remaining juice mixture. Roast until barely opaque throughout, 12 to 15 minutes.
