  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley or mint
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan170°C/gas 5. Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling salted water for 7-8 minutes until tender, then drain.
  2. Lay 4 sheets of heart-shaped baking paper on a work surface and divide the potatoes between them, placing them in the middle. Top each with peas, butter, parsley (or mint), lemon zest and crème fraîche. Place a salmon fillet on each pile, season and drizzle with the oil, lemon juice and stock.

    A very tasty dish, fresh tasting and very easy to make. Wouldn’t use the baking paper again as it fell apart, foil may be better. Also had to cook in the oven for an extra 10 minutes as the salmon wasn’t cooked after the stated 8-10 minutes. Would highly recommend for a midweek meal.
