Sabrina Ghayour’s yogurt and spice roasted salmon

I love to cook roasted salmon in the oven. It’s lazy, quick, works really well and you don’t need any oil as salmon is naturally fatty and delicious. These little salmon bites are something I’ve made time and time again, and this method of roasting them at a high temperature ensures you get a little charring on the outside yet perfectly cooked salmon on the inside. Leftovers also make a great addition to your lunchbox the next day.
