  1. 1 Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Rub the peppers with a little oil, then place, skin side up, in a large roasting tin. Roast for 15 mins, then add the salmon to the tin, skin side down. Scatter over the pine nuts and return to the oven for 10 mins more.

  2. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes in their skins for 8-10 mins until tender, then thickly slice or halve. Mix the oil and vinegar in a large bowl and add the anchovies and capers. When the peppers are cool enough to handle, strip off the skins and very thickly slice the flesh. Toss into the oil mixture with the basil and potatoes, adding any juice from the peppers, then pile onto a large platter with the rocket. Flake the salmon on top in chunky pieces and scatter with the pine nuts. Serve with crusty bread to mop up the juices.

One of those recipes that looks impressive but not hard at all to make. Everyone loved it. Even my 1 year old.

I make this quite regularly and just love it. Even my 2 year old enjoys it (although it depends on his mood whether he will eat the rocket or not!!). I leave out the anchovies.

Really tasty easy lunch! I had all the ingredients bar the basil, so I added a couple of handfuls of salad leaves. The salmon needed an extra couple of minutes. Perfect for a sunny spring day

This is one of my favourite recipes and never disappoints. The flavours are absolutely fantastic. I don't always bother with the balsamic/olive oil dressing as the other flavours are great with or without it, and I often serve it in individual portions with the salmon as fillets instead of flaking it up. Highly highly recommended.

Absolutely delicious! Equally good for a family meal or entertaining - looks and tastes stunning - I just leave out the anchovies.

I have made these on a number of occasions now and one time doubling up the quantities to feed 10 people for an al fresco lunch and it was perfect. Easy to do and tastes gorgeous.

Very colourful and absolutely delicious. I added prawns and blanched green beans.

I have made this dish many times. The flavours go so well together. I love the roasted peppers with the salmon. Very delicious.
