Rubbed in a medley of rich spices and baked until deliciously flaky, this salmon served with a zesty lemon butter sauce is the perfect recipe for spicing up your midweek meals.
  1. Prepare the spice rub for the salmon fillets by combining all the ground spices with the lemon juice and seasoning in a small mixing bowl until smooth. Rub the salmon fillets with the spice rub, arrange on a baking tray lined with nonstick baking paper. Cover and chill.
  2. Combine the lemon juice, shallot and black peppercorns in small saucepan. Reduce the mixture by half over a moderate heat. Remove from the heat and leave to infuse to one side.
  3. Preheat the oven to 220°C.
  4. Remove the salmon escalopes from the fridge and leave at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  5. Strain the reduced lemon juice into a clean saucepan. Heat over a medium heat and whisk in cubes of butter, one at a time, until you have a thickened sauce. Add the cream once you have whisked in all the butter. Season to taste and keep over a very low heat, stirring occasionally.
  6. Roast the salmon in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a moderate heat and sauté the spinach, with some salt for 2-3 minutes until wilted. Spoon the wilted spinach onto serving plates and rest the roasted salmon fillets on the spinach. Spoon some of the sauce around the plate. Garnish with a pinch of curry powder and a slice of lemon before serving.
