Serves 6
4 tbsp dried edible rose petals, ground
2 tsp sumac
1 tsp dried lime powder
1 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp ground cinnamon
Finely grated rind of 1 orange
Finely grated rind of 1 lime
3-6 tbsp olive oil
6 skinless salmon fillets (100g each)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Lemon wedges and mixed salad, to serve

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas mark 6. Line a baking sheet with non-stick baking paper.

2 Combine the ground rose petals, spices and orange and lime rind in a small bowl. Add the oil and stir well to form a wet marinade for the salmon.

3 Rub each salmon fillet well with the spice marinade and place on the prepared baking sheet. (You can cover and leave overnight in the refrigerator to marinate, if you wish.)

4 Season the fillets well with sea salt and black pepper. Bake for 10-12 mins, until the fish is cooked through. Serve with lemon wedges and a mixed salad.
