Method

  1. To cook the veg, boil the potatoes in salted water for about 10 minutes until almost tender but not breaking up. Tip in the frozen peas and simmer for another 2- 3 minutes. Drain well then tip into a mixing bowl. Turn on the grill to high.
  2. Drain the salmon and flake it into chunks, then gently toss with the potatoes and peas. Season to taste with salt and pepper and spoon into a flameproof dish.
  3. Dollop the crème fraîche on top, roughly spread it over, and scatter with the cheese. Grill for a few minutes until bubbly and golden.

I cooked pots then added broccoli, cooked salmon fillets in the microwave tossed with the pots and broccoli then topped with half fat crème fraiche with a dollop of tartare sauce mixed in. topped with a mix of breadcrumbs and cheese. Easy and filling

We really really enjoyed this dish. I adapted it to suit an adult and 2 little girls. I used 2 salmon fillets as i had no tinned in and added sweetcorn for extra veg, i imagine mushrooms would be a delicious addition!

Reduced the potatoes to 400g, the creme fraiche to 150ml as i didn't need to serve 4.

easy and very tasty but impressive. I have made this many times from the take 5 ingredients booklet and it never fails. Have been asked for the recipe so looked it up to print out.

Really nice and easy. I don't like tinned salmon so I used fillets and pan fried them in butter first, then added them to the recipie. I also don't like overcooked peas so I served them on the side. It was delicious. A good one for those of us with children who don't like exotic tastes.

this was a really nice recipe... the only trouble i had was to buy a tin of salmon thatwas not de-boned so spent ages taking all the little bones out and it did not leave me with much salmon!! i too will cook a salmon fillet next timeand flake that... it was also really easy to make it just for one person... i just cooked however much i felt i needed and adaptedit form there....

Simple and tasty. I used fresh salmon, pan fried. Bulked it up with sweetcorn and chestnut mushrooms.

I used hot smoked salmon instead of tinned, and added sauted onion and a mixture of frozen peas and chopped green beans. It was delicious!

I also used 2 tins of salmon, such an easy meal to make. I added sweetcorn with peppers plus peas, it was yummy.

Totally yummy. I used two tins of Samon to bulk it up, plus i put in Tiger prawns. Instead of peas i used sweetcorn as my freezer has packed up and the supermarket diddnt have fresh peas. It was really easy to make plus my fella wolfed it up having seconds and taking the leftovers to work. I will defenetly be making this again.

This is one of my favorite recipes. Unfortunately in Portugal we can not get tinned salmon!!!!! Fresh salmon wasn't as nice. Have made it many times with tuna but it's not the same :(

After reading other reviews I was sceptical about the amount of salmon used but I was pleasantly suprised. The dish was really easy to do and was a quick and tasty midweek meal.
I can't wait to try this dish with tinned tuna!

This was very easy to put together and tasted good. I agree that maybe it could use a bit more salmon in it. I think it is a good base to add more vegetables to the mix for a quick and healthy meal. I bet you could use tuna too.
