Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Slice the carrots (unpeeled) into 1cm fries. Place the carrot fries on an oven tray lined with baking paper, drizzle with olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then bake for 25-30 minutes or until tender. TIP: Cut the carrots to the correct size to ensure they cook in the allocated time.
While the carrot fries are baking, finely chop the parsley leaves. Pick the dill leaves and finely chop. In a medium bowl, place the parsley, dill, panko breadcrumbs (see ingredients list) and dukkah. Add olive oil (1 1/2 tbs for 2 people / 3 tbs for 4 people) and mix well.
Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towel and place on a second oven tray lined with baking paper. Lightly coat or spray with olive oil. Spoon the herb crust mixture onto the top side of the salmon and gently press down so it sticks. Some will fall off – don’t worry, you’ll use it later!
Bake the salmon on the top rack for the final 6-10 minutes of the carrot cooking time, or until the crust is golden and the salmon is just cooked through. TIP: It's okay to serve salmon slightly rare in the middle!
While the salmon is baking, cut the tomato into 1cm chunks. In a medium bowl, combine the balsamic vinegar, honey and olive oil (2 tsp for 2 people / 4 tsp for 4 people). Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Add the tomato and rocket leaves and toss to coat just before serving.
Divide the herb-crusted salmon, carrot fries and salad between plates. Sprinkle over any remaining crust (from the tray) and serve with a dollop of tartare sauce.
