  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.

Very easy recipe which tasted lovely. Par boiled the potatoes and broccoli and then cooked the assembled dish in the oven for 15 minutes. I halved the quantity of potatoes, broccoli and salmon but still used 300mls creme fraiche and 2 tbsp mustard. Will definitely be making this one again.

Lovely recipe, very simple to cook. I par boiled the potatoes, steamed the broccoli for a few minutes and then cooked the assembled dish in the oven for 15 minutes. I halved the quantity of salmon, broccoli and potatoes as there are just two of us but still used a 300ml tub of creme fraiche and just under 2 tbsp mustard. Tasted lovely and will make again.

My kids loved this! Surprised me, I didn't think it was going to be winner. Very easy. Parboiled potatoes first.

Loved this! Very quick and easy to make but also very tasty to eat. Not sure these quantities would serve 4 though. I boiled enough potatoes for two, used one small head of broccoli, two salmon fillets with the quantity of sauce prescribed albeit with only two generous teaspoons of mustard. I baked mine in the oven, didn't use the parmesan, but finished it with a quick bubble under the grill before serving it with a few peas. Will definitely be making it again!

Sounds good and I will try it for lunch today. However, although arithmetic isn't my best subject, I can't see how 10 mins for the potatoes, plus 3 for the broccoli, plus 5 for grilling can add up to 10 mins cooking time!

Have made this a number of times now as my hubby who is not the biggest fish fan loves it. It is also quick and so easy, perfect when I don't have much time. I also sometimes add a few capers.

Having read through other comments I used 300ml half fat creme fraiche and 2 tbsp dijon mustard which gave a lovely flavour but not too intense. I also added sweet corn and baked it in the oven for ten minutes, finishing under the grill for five minutes. My husband went back for seconds!

Love this! Made it last night, boiled the pots and brocolli instead of microwaving. So quick and very tasty - added sweetcorn in to mine as had some left to use. Would be nice with 1 extra veg I think!

Beautiful food, my boyfriend said it was one of his favourites. However! The suggested time is completely off. Ready in 15 mins it says, with 18 minutes of microwaving time and none for prep like cutting the potatoes up at the start. I parboiled the potatoes and broccoli, tipped them into a casserole dish, added the salmon, 200 ml creme fraiche mixed with 1 tblsp dijon mustard and a generous sprinkling of shaved parmesan. Tried to cook it under the grill but the salmon was still raw, so I put it in the oven for 10 mins. Perfection. Will do again.

We loved this recipe, I served it with a huge salad. The only thing I changed is that I used bought bechamel sauce, which I lightened with a little milk, as I didn't have creme friache. A different and tasty way to cook salmon which we eat quite often.
