We spread the fish in a whole piece on a baking sheet. Lined with parchment, grease the salmon with a citrus-garlic mixture. Cut a half of lime and an orange into circles and arrange on the fish. Preheat the oven in grill mode and cook fish for about 10 minutes. Readiness of fish assess visually and by smell.
Serving dishes can be either individual or general
Peel the oranges from the peel, take the lime without the peel and cut the citrus into small cubes. Also finely chop shallots and cilantro. Hot pepper must be cut extremely finely. Squeeze the juice from half a lime and mix. Season with salt and pepper. Store in a refrigerator in a glass container.
Melt the butter in a saucepan, mix it with chopped aromatic herbs. We take the fish out of the oven and pour spiced oil. Serve on a table in a beautiful dish with citrus sauce.
