  • 1 slice crusty bread, crusts removed
  • handful of parsley stalks
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus a little for brushing
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 250g new potatoes, quartered
  • 100g peas
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ tbsp malt vinegar
  • tartare sauce, to serve (optional)


  1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Blitz the bread with the parsley, garlic, olive oil and some seasoning. Brush each of the fish fillets with a little oil then pat the breadcrumbs on, place on a lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 mins, until flaking.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a pan of salted water to the boil and add the new potatoes. Cook for 8-10 mins, until a knife can slide in without resistance, adding the peas for the last 2 mins. Drain, then tip back into the pan to steam dry, add the butter and malt vinegar and roughly mash, keeping it a bit chunky.

  3. Dollop the mash onto a plate, top with the fish and serve with tartare sauce, if you like.
