2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for greasing foil

2 cloves garlic, crushed

100 grams (4 ounces) mushrooms, sliced

1/2 red bell pepper, sliced

100 grams (4 ounces) Swiss chard, torn into pieces

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Two 250-gram (9-ounce) fresh salmon fillets, skin off

140 grams (5 ounces) sugar snaps


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C (390 degrees F) and line a baking sheet with greased foil.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet and saute the garlic for a minute. Add the mushrooms and peppers and cook until slightly soft. Add the Swiss chard, thyme and lemon zest and cook until wilted. Season with salt and pepper and leave to cool slightly.
  3. Make a lengthwise slit in the fish fillets (keeping both ends intact) to make room for the stuffing. Stuff half of the stuffing into each fillet and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Add the sugar snaps and bake until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, for a further 2 minutes of cooking; the fish should still be pink inside.
  4. Transfer to a serving platter and finish with a squeeze of lemon juice.
