For the quinoa

350g quinoa

100g dried cranberries

2 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground allspice

50g unsalted lactose free butter, diced

85g toasted pine nuts

small handful mint leaves, roughly chopped

small handful basil leaves, roughly chopped

For the fish

6 x 140g skinless salmon fillets

25g lactose free butter, diced

zest 1 orange, juice of ½

To serve

6 tbsp cranberry sauce

zest and juice ½ orange


Boil the kettle. Put the quinoa, cranberries and spices in a large bowl. Dot with the lactose free butter and pour over 350ml boiling water. Cover immediately with cling film and leave for 5 mins to steam. Remove the film and fluff with a fork to loosen the quinoa grains. Cool, stir in the pine nuts and herbs, then season to taste. Cut 6 squares of baking parchment about 30 x 30cm.

Season the salmon fillets, spoon the quinoa in mounds in the centre of the parchment squares, then dot with a little butter. Top each with a piece of salmon, scatter with a little orange zest and drizzle with a little juice. Fold the sides of the paper over, then fold up the ends to make a parcel.

Tie with string and secure with a bow. Stir together the cranberry sauce, orange zest and juice, then set aside in a serving bowl. The parcels can be chilled for up to 1 day. Be sure to remove them from the fridge 20 mins before cooking.

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the parcels on a baking sheet in the middle of the oven and cook for 15 mins, or 20 mins if you prefer your salmon well done. Pop the parcels onto plates and let your guests unwrap their own supper. Serve with the cranberry & orange sauce.
