  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.

I tried this tonight but with trout as OH doesn't like salmon and sorry but was disappointed
Not sure why but it wasn't to my taste nor my other half. Can't pinpoint why exactly as on paper ingredients bang on though I didn't think the mint vinegar was a good addition. Too overpowering for a fish that is best served I think without other ingredients masking it

Just to say that I made this with cod as the husband won't eat salmon - it was really tasty. I'd love to try with the salmon but can definitely experiment with other fish

This has become one of our go to recipes after a busy day with not a great deal of time to cook. As a tiny twist we use mint sauce instead of chopped mint and white wine vinegar and find it words better, although others might not agree.

Tried this for the first time today for a family lunch. Used individual salmon fillets and didn't have any mint but otherwise just as above. It was delicious. We ate it accompanied by French bread to mop up the juices. Next time i will slightly reduce the initial cooking time for the potatoes before adding the pancetta. I also reduced the temperature to 190 C as I was using a fan oven.

Yum yum, this was lovely! I made it for my husband and myself, so used approximately half the amounts of ingredients. I also added cherry tomatoes. We really enjoyed it and will definitely make it again.

Great recipe for a comfort food dinner. Served it to the kids without the spring onions and they loved it. 5/5

Super simple and delicious. I took out the bacon and added sun-dried tomatoes and it tasted absolutely fantastic.'s picture

Very pleased with this, considering it it such a simple dish, it was lovely.

I didn't have the problem with overcooking the potatoes, but our oven is a bit naff and is probably 10 or so degress lower than what it thinks.

Will definently be making this again,

Really tasty recipe, I added cherry tomatoes on the vine and some steamed asparagus. Will definitely make again.

I've cooked some pretty amazing recipes from Good Food .. but this one is without doubt the best so far. A simple, tasty ....oooooh, sooo tasty, recipe that all the family have absolutely LOVED. In fact, hubby says he'd quite happily eat the same meal again tomorrow.
Made this as per the recipe. Didn't change a thing. Yum yum yum. THANK YOU Good Food!!

This took no time to prepare, not sure where the 45 mins prep time comes from. Really lovely and fresh tasting, wasn't sure about the vinegar and mint but they add a lovely flavour. Like other comments I found the potatoes cooked too quickly and had to turn the oven down to 180. Would make again but with a lower oven temperature. Enjoyed by the whole family.

Fab recipe. I used salmon fillets and reduced the cooking time to suit. I especially liked the vinegar, mint and spring onions in the peas (it reminded me of Yorkshire salad.

I made this for a dinner party for 6 people and it was positively awesome. Nothing left over for the dog. It didn't take anything like 45 mins to prepare - more like 5 mins and an all-in-one dish made clearing up easy. I added a little Maple Syrup to the salmon and gave it a little blast with the grill. I served it on a large plate with the potatoes and peas around the edge, a spring of mint on top. I shall certainly do again.

A great dinner party recipe. Looks very impressive and easy to cook.

Really easy - am very impressed. High impact low effort cooking that is very tasty!! I added halved cherry tomatoes at the same time as the bacon and left out the spring onion - still very tasty! Clean plates all round and looks impressive when you serve it at the table.

This recipe was a superb dish, it is easy to prepare and cook, it did take about 40 mins but it was well worth the wait. Id defintly make it again because every thing about this was perfect. instead of white wine vinager i used white viniger with sugar which was the iceing on the cake well on the salmon, so thank you for putting it one it was delice.

This was good and I would make it again. I think next time I would definitely reduce cooking time on the potatoes as they were a bit too brown. I didnt use Lardons I used smoked bacon instead.
I think using the mint would be better, I didnt have any and felt that the dish was missing something. Wondering if spreading the samon with honey would work?

OMG I tried this last night and it was beautiful. I struggle to find fun things to do with fish but this dish is amazing. I would leave out the vinegar and spring onion next time (that is just my own taste though dont be put off) I CAnNOT wait to make this dish again. Very impressed!
