  • 500 g salmon cut into pieces (I used 4), skinned
  • 1 large sweetheart cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons dill finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Sea salt and white pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  • Place the salmon pieces on a large plate, season and drizzle generously with the lime juice. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 F/ 220 C/ gas mark 7. You will need a medium oven dish.
  • Cut the cabbage in half lengthways and then each piece again in half lengthways. Slice each piece into approx. 1 cm thick strips.
  • In a large pot heat up the oil, add the cabbage and cook for a couple of minutes over a medium/high heat stirring constantly. Add the dill, season to taste and continue cooking for 5 more minutes stirring often.
  • Transfer the cabbage into the oven dish, place the salmon pieces on top (including the lime marinade if there is any left on the plate), pressing gently, put a few small knobs of butter on the fish pieces and cover the dish with tin foil.
  • Bake for 20 minutes (±2 minutes, depending on how thick your salmon is). Serve with potatoes, pasta, rice or a slice of crusty bread.
