Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Roasted Salmon, Crushed Potatoes, Caper & Lemon Sauce

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Boil a kettle

Chop the waxy potatoes into bite-sized pieces

2 Roasted Salmon, Crushed Potatoes, Caper & Lemon Sauce

Add the potatoes to a pot of boiled water with a pinch of salt, bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 12-15 min or until almost fork-tender

3 Roasted Salmon, Crushed Potatoes, Caper & Lemon Sauce

While the potatoes are cooking, chop the chives finely

Cut the lemon[s] in half

4 Roasted Salmon, Crushed Potatoes, Caper & Lemon Sauce

Once the potatoes are almost cooked, add the green beans and cook for 3-4 min or until cooked with a slight bite

Once done, drain and return to the pot to steam dry

5 Roasted Salmon, Crushed Potatoes, Caper & Lemon Sauce

Meanwhile, add the salmon fillets to a baking tray, skin-side down (use lightly oiled tin foil to keep them from sticking!)

Add a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper

Put the tray in the oven and cook for 10-12 min or until cooked through

Tip: Your fish is cooked when it turns opaque and flakes easily

6 Roasted Salmon, Crushed Potatoes, Caper & Lemon Sauce

While this fish is cooking, heat a separate pot over a low heat

Add the clotted cream and cook for 1-2 min or until melted

Once melted, add the capers and juice of 1/2 [1] lemon and cook for 30 secs further

Season with a pinch of salt – this is your lemon & caper sauce

7 Roasted Salmon, Crushed Potatoes, Caper & Lemon Sauce

Return the drained potatoes and green beans to the pot

Crush the potatoes lightly with a fork

Add 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up
