This salmon fillet is a great option for anyone who likes a lighter protein or wants to eat less red meat. To garnish the fish, Ricardo prepared a tapenade featuring the bright acidity of fresh cranberries. ’Tis the season to take advantage of this Nordic fruit that rivals citrus in the tart department.



  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the salmon on the prepared sheet, skin side down. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a bowl, combine the cranberries, maple syrup and mustard. Spread over the salmon. Bake for 15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked medium rare.
  4. Sprinkle with chervil. Serve hot or at room temperature.


  1. I have made this in the past with fresh cranberries. It is delicious and colourful! At the moment I only have dried cranberries. Can I substitute dry? Do they need to be rehydrated?

  2. Excellent recipe for Christmas. I made the cranberry sauce earlier in the day, not sure if it makes a difference. Quick and our guests loved it.

  3. This recipe was excellent. Very easy, delicious and the timing was perfect. would definitely recommend.
