Ingredients

  • 750g jersey royal or new potatoes, halved if large
  • 200g asparagus spears, tough ends trimmed
  • 200ml soured cream
  • Small bunch fresh dill, roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 sustainable salmon fillets, skin on

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C fan/gas 6. Fill a large pan with boiling water and put a steamer with a lid on top. Steam the potatoes for 15-20 minutes until tender, adding the asparagus for the last 5 minutes (less time if the stalks are particularly thin).
  2. Meanwhile, mix the soured cream, dill and dijon mustard in a small bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Fry the salmon, skin-side down, for 4 minutes, then gently turn and cook for 4 minutes more or until cooked through. Set aside and keep warm. Pour the sauce into the pan and gently warm through for a minute – don’t let it boil. Serve the fish with the steamed vegetables, then pour the sauce over the fish.
