Ingredients

  • 300g Violet Queen potatoes
  • Olive oil, to drizzle
  • 20g miso paste
  • 10g sesame seeds
  • 2 salmon filets
  • 10g butter
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Toasted sesame oil, to drizzle
  • Half a bag of fresh spinach
  • Salt and pepper

Method

  1. 1Pre-heat your oven to 180°C.
  2. 2Cut the potatoes in half and place in an ovenproof dish, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the potatoes in the pre-heated oven for 15 minutes.
  3. 3After 15 minutes cooking, remove the potatoes from the oven, coat in the miso paste and give the pan a shake. Place the potatoes back in the oven for a further 10-15 minutes or until cooked.
  4. 4Whilst the potatoes are cooking, season the salmon with salt and pepper. Heat the butter in a frying pan and fry the salmon skin side down for a couple of minutes then turn the salmon over and continue frying until cooked (6-8 minutes). Once cooked, squeeze the juice of half a lemon over the salmon.
  5. 5Place the spinach in a saucepan with the toasted sesame oil and cook on a low heat until wilted.
  6. 6Once everything is cooked, assemble on a plate and sprinkle the sesame seeds over the potatoes.
