Reduce the oven temperature to 200øC, 400øC, gas mark 6. Place the salmon into the oven and bake uncovered for a further 20 minutes, or until the flesh flakes easily.

Place each steak on a small bed of roasted vegetables, and pour any remaining juices over the top. Serve with couscous and freshly chopped basil.
