  5. Drizzle the butter mixture over the salmon

  7. Enclose the salmon in the foil and place into the oven
  8. Bake for approx 15-20 mins or until salmon is tender and pulls apart with a fork
  9. Open foil and cook for a further 5 mins
  10. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and a little more Pepperberry Salt Mix (if needed)
  11. Serve with a light salad or wild rice
