Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Place salmon on the prepared pan. Mash garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, peppercorns and lemon zest into a paste with a fork or a mortar and pestle. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon oil and mustard. Spread on the salmon. Bake until the flesh flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, pulse cranberries, shallot and serrano in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in apple, celery, vinegar, 1 tablespoon parsley and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

  • Sprinkle the salmon with the remaining 1 tablespoon parsley and serve with the relish and lemon wedges.


To make ahead: Refrigerate relish (Step 3) for up to 1 day.

Equipment: Parchment paper

This is amazing. The combination of flavors - tart tangy and spicy - lends itself well to the taste of the salmon. Paired with some roasted asparagus it made a perfect meal. We made this exactly as written and Wouldn t change a thing. It would be a perfect holiday dish to serve guests this season. Definitely saving this recipe! Read More
