Take the salmon fillet and using a sharp knife, carefully remove the skin. [Or you can ask your fishmonger to do this for you.]
Remove any woody stalks from your thyme leaves and place the leaves in a small bowl, along with the olive oil. Press the leaves into the oil, bruising them a little so that they break down a little and release their oil. Season to taste with a little salt and pepper.
Lay two slices of Parma ham side by side on a board with the long edges overlapping slightly.
Now take the salmon fillet and half the thyme oil and drizzle this over the fish. Place the salmon down onto the Parma ham, laying it in the middle across the width of the slices.
Carefully pull the extra edges of ham over the salmon, so that the fillet is completely wrapped in Parma ham. Place onto a baking sheet.
Place the salmon in the oven and bake for 12-15 until the salmon is cooked through. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
