1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon fresh chives, minced
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 large rimmed baking pans with olive oil. Arrange the salmon fillets on one of the pans and generously season with salt and pepper.
2. In a small bowl combine the lime juice, garlic, chilli powder, cumin and 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Pour half of the spice mixture over the tops of the salmon fillets.
3. In a medium bowl toss the courgette, peppers, and red onion with the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil and with the remaining spice mixture. Spread the veggies over the remaining pan and generously season with salt and pepper.
