  • ½ red chilli, finely diced

  • 50g / 1¾ oz sultanas or raisins

  • Salt and pepper, to season

    Place the bread in a food processor with the herbs and blend for approximately a minute. Heat a little oil in a pan, add the piece of salmon and sear for a couple of minutes. Then flip over and brush some mustard on the fish and then scatter the herbed crumbs over, then finish in the oven at 220 degrees Celsius for 2 minutes.

    Cut the cabbage very finely. Heat the oil in a pot and add the cabbage and cook for 2 minutes. Push the cabbage to one side and add the icing sugar. Allow this to caramelise. Stir back the cabbage and mix.
