Ingredients (serves 4)
4 Salmon fillets
2 tbsp. capers
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 tbsp. paprika
4 cloves garlic
4 lemon wedges
200g cherry tomatoes
4 tbsp. Olive oil
salt & pepper for seasoning
Aluminium/Kitchen foil for wrapping
pre heat oven to 200c. Place salmon filets on individual sheets of foil, sprinkle over the capers, paprika, chilli flakes and add a lemon wedge on each salmon along with a clove of garlic and a few cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season well with salt and pepper. Wrap each fillet like a parcel ensuring its packed very loose as the steam from the salmon is important to cook the fish. Fold over the ends of the foil to ensure a tight seal. bake in  hot oven for 10-15 minutes.
To serve, you can either serve in the foil parcels or on the plate. best served with a side of fresh salad leafs with tomato and a dressing of olive oil and lemon juice.
