    Recipe Information

    Print page

    1kg potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

    6 spring onions, finely sliced

    1 tsp vegetable oil

    4 salmon fillets

    4 tbsp 1% fat milk

    2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

    250g broccoli, broken into florets

    1 pinch ground black pepper


    Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 20 minutes, until tender, adding the spring onions to the saucepan 5 minutes before the end of cooking time.

    When the potatoes have been cooking for 10 minutes, start to prepare the salmon.

    Heat the vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan, brushing it over the surface. Add the salmon, skin side down.

    Cook over a high heat for 2-3 minutes, without moving the fillets.

    Turn the salmon over, reduce the heat and cook for a further 3-4 minutes.

    At this point, put the broccoli on to cook in a little boiling water - it will take about 5-6 minutes.

    Let the salmon rest for a few minutes while making the mash.

    Drain the potatoes and spring onions and mash thoroughly.

    Beat in the milk and parsley.

    Reheat on the hob for 1 minute, beating well.

    Share the mash between four warmed plates and arrange the salmon fillets on top.

    Serve with the broccoli.
