  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C and pat the salmon dry with kitchen paper. Make up the stuffing to pack instructions. Line a large, low-sided baking tray with baking paper and drizzle over ½ tbsp of the oil.
  2. Lay the salmon on the baking tray; season. Stir the parsley through the stuffing mixture, then dot spoonfuls all over the salmon and use your hands to gently spread it over the top. Drizzle over 1 tbsp of the oil, then scatter over the pistachios and lightly press into the stuffing.
  3. Brush the cut sides of the clementines with ½ tbsp oil and arrange cut-side up around the salmon. Put the shallots in a small bowl and toss with the remaining ½ tbsp oil; season, then arrange around the salmon and clementines. Roast for 25-30 mins until the salmon is cooked through, and the stuffing is golden and crisp – a meat thermometer inserted into the centre of the salmon should read 63°C.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk together the dressing ingredients with some seasoning. Serve in a bowl or jug alongside the salmon.
