Method
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°c

Then line a small roasting tin with foil, leaving an overhang large enough to fold over the fish once inside. Put the salmon fillets on the foil and season well. Fold the foil up to meet so that the salmon is enclosed. Cook in a preheated oven for 18 minutes, then remove from the foil and put the salmon fillets in a shallow dish.
