    Serves 8.

    1 whole side of salmon, with skin on, approx. 1.5 kg, cleaned and scales removed
    2 tsp green peppercorns, crushed
    1 tsp juniper berry, crushed
    1 tsp cayenne pepper
    2 tbsp parsley, chopped
    1 tsp granulated sugar
    1 lemon, zested and juiced
    3 tbsp olive oil

    1. Place the salmon skin side down on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

    2. Mix the peppercorns and juniper berries with the cayenne pepper, parsley, sugar, 2 teaspoons of salt, lemon zest, 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice and oil.

    3. Place ingredients in a heavy bottomed pan and let the mixture simmer for approximately 1 hour. After this time, brush the mixture over the exposed side of the salmon and bake in the oven at 160C/140C fan/ gas 3 for 30 minutes or until it is just cooked through, salmon is best served with a pink core.

    4. Serve the salmon on a platter for people to help themselves alongside boiled potatoes and steamed seasonal vegetables or salad.
