  1. Dry the salmon fillets on kitchen paper and brush the undersides with a little of the oil. Cover and set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine the breadcrumbs with all the rest of the ingredients and the remaining oil, stirring thoroughly.
  2. Coat the salmon fillets with the breadcrumb mix, pressing it over the tops firmly and making sure all the flesh is covered. Heat the grill to medium high, heating the grillpan (no rack) too. When the grill and the pan are hot, remove pan from heat and quickly arrange the salmon fillets on it (they should sizzle with the heat). Return to grill (about 4cm away from the heat source) and grill until the salmon is just cooked through and the topping is golden. If the topping is becoming too dark before the salmon is cooked, turn the heat down a little and/or move the grillpan further away from the heat source.

Try serving each portion with steamed broccoli and new potatoes.
