INGREDIENTS

  • Skin on Salmon fillet : 600g
  • Potatoes (e.g. King Edwards or other waxy variety) : 800g
  • Cooking cream * : 300ml approx
  • Onion
  • Leek
  • Fresh lemon (lime can be used if preferred)
  • Fresh Dill
  • Salt and pepper

* If cooking cream is unavailable then watered down single cream will be an acceptable alternative.

 

METHOD

  1. Squeeze lemon juice over the flesh side of the salmon, sprinkle with salt and some finely chopped dill, and leave to marinate.

  2. Butter an oven dish deep enough and big enough for the salmon and other ingredients.

  3. Peel and cut the potatoes so they are uniform shaped to cook evenly e.g. chips or squares. Cover the bottom of the dish (double layer them if necessary).

  4. Thinly slice the onions and leeks. Place in the dish.

  5. Add salt, pepper, finely chopped dill (remember to save some dill for the garnish) and stir with fingers until evenly mixed.

  6. Squeeze in some lemon juice and pour over the cream to just about cover the potatoes.

  7. Heat oven to 200 degrees centigrade.

  8. Cook potato mixture for approx. 40mins or until potatoes half cooked through. Remove from oven, then turn down to 180 degrees centigrade.

  9. Add the salmon on top of potatoes, SKIN side UP. Add some lemon juice juice and some cream over fish. Return to the centre of the oven until potatoes and the fish are cooked (Possibly another 30 - 40 mins. Check halfway).

  10. When cooked, remove the skin. Sprinkle with dill and a squeeze of lemon juice over the top, and serve with your choice of salads.
