  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.

Used cheddar cheese when saving some for my 9 month old though as parmesan is unpasteurised

Great recipe, quick and easy and everyone loved it - also worked well when blended down for my 9 month old - thought the mustard might put her off but she loved it!

Lovely family meal, although i cooked the wedges in the oven with oil and salmon under the grill and boiled the broccoli and put all together at the end. Delicious.

Wasn't much of a fan of this. Used dijon mustard hoping it would be less strong, but I still found it overpowered the dish. If there was something you could subtitute for the mustard I'm sure it would be a lovely dish!

I've made this recipe several times now, and every time my husband says how delicious it is! I always halve the recipe as I only need anough for two, and use much less mustard (about 1 slightly heaped teaspoon) and the full 200ml creme fraiche. I wonder if creme fraiche in the UK is different to what we can buy here, as the "sauce" is actually a bit too thick, so I also leave a small amount of the cooking water in the dish. It's the only way my husband (almost) likes broccoli!

Oh how simple this dish is yet so tasty and looks great. My husband pulled his face when I told him what was for his evening meal but once he'd finished it asked when was I doing it again. I think this is going to be a regular dish.

Really simple and easy to make. I used 2tsps mustard so not too strong. I also crisped up potatoes in oven and the baked the entire dish for 15 mins rather than grilling. Much better result I think.

It was quick to prepare, & tasty, but took a lot longer than 10 minutes to cook, ie 15 mins in the microwave, then 10 in the oven. And my sons who normally love cheese didn't think the parmesan went well with this.

I made this for the first time last night and hubby and I both loved it. I used low fat creme fraiche but used only half the amount and topped it up with skimmed milk - it was still nice and creamy but lighter. I also cooked it in the oven for 15 minutes rather than grilling as I was not too convinced about only 5 mins for the salmon to cook. Will definitely be making again.
