Method

  1. Put the potato wedges into a shallow microwave-proof baking dish, then cook on High for 10 mins until almost tender all the way through (turn the wedges halfway through to ensure even cooking). Add the broccoli, re-cover and cook for another 3 mins or until the florets just give with a knife. If you don’t have a microwave, boil instead.
  2. Heat grill to medium. Mix the crème fraîche and mustard together with a little seasoning. Nestle the salmon in among the potatoes and broccoli, then spoon over the crème fraîche mix, making sure most of the broccoli is covered with sauce. Sprinkle with the cheese and grill for 5 mins until the sauce is bubbling, the tips of the potatoes are golden and the salmon is just cooked.

The combination of the ingredients was really nice - not sure about the mustard, so would leave this out next time.

Could you use greek yoghurt instead of creme fraiche? Mmmmmmmmmmh! Maybe I'll try it lol!

Very quick & easy to cook, love the taste of salmon etc but dont think much of the mustard, can it be replaced by anything at all??

Was nice but maybe too much mustard for me, found the sauce a little tangy

Tried this last weekend , it is very tasty. We will try again adding leeks, as one of the previous comments suggested.

This was absolutely delicous and simple to make, the salmon was cooked perfectly. I used half fat creme fraiche so was really healthy. Will definitely make it again.

I agree with tattookitten; I added more vegetables, and therefore needed more creme fraiche, but I used the low fat alternative to keep the saturated fats to a minimum. Scrummy recipe.

Another dinner table favourite. I use more creme fraiche and boil the potatoes as our microwave isn't up to the job. The salmon stays really moist and melts in the mouth. I might add something with a bit of cruch next time, just to give it a bit of texture. It's so easy to make, took about half an hour.

Such a yummy recipe. I usually add extra creme fraiche, and use smoked salmon.

Very yummy, super easy. Next time however i will be keeping the potato wedges seperate because it just didn't feel like a complete meal.
I also added lots of other recipes leek, mushrooms and sweetcorn, just for extra texture!
