Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Line a baking tray with foil and put the salmon on top, skin-side down. In a bowl, mix the cumin, cinnamon, sumac and 1 tsp salt. Rub over the fish.
  2. In a food processor, blend the bread to fine crumbs with the oil. Sprinkle over the fish, then bake for 20 mins, or until golden and cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk the lemon zest and juice, oil, honey, pomegranate seeds and all but 1 tbsp of the parsley.
  4. When the fish is cooked, scatter over the reserved parsley and some dressing. Serve on a platter with the extra dressing in a bowl alongside.

Tip: If you can't find a 1kg salmon side, the spice-crusted salmon can also be made with two 500g sides.
