Step 1

Preheat oven to 170°C. Place salmon fillets in a large shallow plate. Mix olive oil, garlic, oregano, balsamic vinegar, chilli flakes, lemon and salt in a small bowl. Pour marinade over the salmon and gently rub to evenly coat the salmon on all sides. Cover with cling film and allow to rest for 20 mins.

Step 2

Place salmon fillets on a lined baking tray with the whole head of garlic. Roast in the oven for approximately 15 mins. Place salmon fillets under a hot grill for 2-3 minutes to get the char grill look on the salmon.

Step 3

Mix all ingredients for the yoghurt sauce in a bowl reserving a small amount of grated cucumber and chilli flakes to sprinkle on top.

Step 4

Arrange lettuce leaves on a large platter. Place cooked salmon fillets down the centre of the platter. Place the yoghurt sauce bowl, cherry tomatoes, asparagus, whole roasted garlic, blood orange and lemon wedges around the salmon on the platter. Serve immediately with pita bread and enjoy!
