  • 200g baby potatoes, halved lengthways
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter
  • 300g skinless salmon fillet, halved
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 235g washed and ready to cook spinach
  • 1 tbsp extra thick half fat cream
  • 1 pinch freshly ground nutmeg


  1. Cook the potatoes according to the pack instructions. Meanwhile, melt half the butter in a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Pat the salmon dry with kitchen paper, season the top sides. Place seasoned-side down in the hot pan. Cook for 3 minutes each side, then transfer to a plate.

  2. Add the remaining butter to the pan and sauté the onion and garlic for 1-2 minutes until soft. Reduce the heat and add the spinach, in batches, until wilted. Season, then stir in the cream, potatoes and nutmeg. Add a couple of spoonfuls of water to loosen if needed.

  3. Make a well in the centre of the potato mixture. Place the cooked salmon inside. Cook for 1 minute, or until piping hot. Serve immediately.

Cook’s tip

Try this recipe with other fish too, such as haddock or cod. Smoked fish would also work well, but will be higher in salt content.
