It's Throwback Thursday again and today we have a recipe from our September 2008 issue.

As part of this weekly series, we’re going to share some older content from our magazine to help look back at what the Irish food scene was like when FOOD&WINE Magazine started.

This week's recipe comes from Hugo Arnold, cookbook author, food journalist and hospitality consultant. Hugo contributed to the magazine for the entirety of its run, with his Midweek Meals and Easy Entertaining features firm favourites of our readers.

Today's recipe comes from Hugo's series, where he shared some easy summer dishes. In this issue, Hugo's dishes included roasted pepper and pesto pizza, sautéed pears, and sticky hoisin lamb.

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 x 150g fillets salmon

  • 1 bunch coriander, rough chopped
