Table Manners salmon with ginger and coriander crumb

LENNIE Jessie likes to add a red chilli to the breadcrumbs and coriander in this salmon with ginger and coriander crumb; I don’t like heat so I always leave it out, but it’s delicious either way. Serve with a nice green salad – rocket, spinach and watercress would be good – and small new potatoes.
