  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.

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,

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.

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.
