4 radishes, halved and thinly sliced

2: Seal fillets in aluminium foil with the leftover marinade, and place in a glass dish. Bake for 35-45 mins at 190 degrees.
3: Prepare the salad dressing by combining remaining garlic and lemon juice with mustard, basil, and oregano and salt and pepper to taste. Blend until well combined.
4: Toss the salad vegetables with the dressing and divide evenly between two plates. Gently flake the cooked salmon and scatter the pieces on the top of the salad. Serve and enjoy.
