Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Tip the potatoes into a large shallow roasting tin and toss with 1 tsp olive oil and some seasoning. Roast for 20 mins until just starting to colour, then scatter over the lardons and return to the oven for 10 mins to crisp up.
  2. Remove the tin from the oven, push the potatoes and bacon to the sides and lay the salmon in the middle. Brush with remaining oil, season, then return to the oven and cook for 20 mins more until the salmon is just cooked through. Meanwhile, cook the peas in boiling water for 2 mins and drain.
  3. When the fish is cooked, lift it to a serving dish. Stir the peas and spring onions through the potatoes, drizzle with a splash of vinegar, stir through the mint and season to taste. Spoon around the salmon and serve.

Made for a quick supper, the salmon was baked to perfection, the lardons gave a nice smoky flavouring, potatoes a little over cooked so will reduce cooking time next time as I WILL be making again

This was really delicious and was enjoyed by everyone. Easy to make with minimal washing up afterwards. I found that the initial cooking of the potatoes was too long at twenty minutes and I ended up having to cover them in foil when the salmon was cooking to stop them getting too brown. I added a handful of samphire with the peas and it was gorgeous and complemented the fish perfectly. Will definiteley make again!
