How to cook salmon - get it right first time, every time with this easy, foolproof method.

You will need

  • salmon
  • tinfoil
  • oil and brush
  • large pan
  • seasoning of your choice

Start off with two salmon fillets - you may recognise these frozen salmon fillets as the ones I froze here

You can see why it's important to bag them separately as I've left two in the bag and these have come out easily.

Take a piece of tinfoil about 4 times the size of your fish.

Turn it dull side up and brush it with some oil so that your salmon doesn't stick.

Put your piece of salmon in the centre.

You can cook it plain or add some seasoning - pepper, lemon juice, white wine - your choice depending on what you want to do after you cook it.

I left this plain as I am going to cook fish cakes with it.

Wrap the foil tightly round - bring it up over the salmon and fold it over to make it watertight to cook, then do the ends the same to seal it.
