download (2)This recipe represents a fusion of ingredients from the Asian sub-continent, combining the traditional method of cooking food wrapped in parcels in makeshift underground ovens from the South pacific. (Known as’Lovo’ in Fiji or a ‘Hangi’ in New Zealand).

I have adapted this for our modern world by using foil and a conventional oven. Salmon can be substituted with any fish of your choice.

4 salmon fillets                                           4 tbsp dark soy sauce

Assortment of mixed vegetable –                 2 tbsp honey
