    Like Marmite, fennel is something that you either love or hate - its strong aniseed flavour…

  • 2 boneless, skinless salmon fillets
  • 2 tbsp olive tapenade
  • ½ lemon, cut into wedges

    Oval in shape, with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile fruits…

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Toss the potatoes and fennel with 1 tbsp olive oil and arrange on a baking tray or in a roasting dish. Season and roast on the top shelf for 15 mins.

  2. Turn the veg, then top with the salmon. Season and roast for another 15 mins. Meanwhile, mix 1 tbsp olive oil with the tapenade to loosen it.

  3. Once roasted, drizzle the salmon and vegetables with the tapenade. Sprinkle over the fennel fronds and serve with lemon wedges.

Tasty enough but it took nearly an hour for the fennel and potatoes to cook properly, so I had to remove the salmon. They also needed added liquid as they were drying out. If I try again I'll cover them.
