Preheat the oven to 180°. In a pestle and mortar, bash the fennel seeds with a good pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Place the salmon, skin-side down, in a roasting tray and sprinkle over the fennel salt over the top. Finely grate over the lemon zest.
Bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until just cooked, but still a little translucent in the center.
