Creamy salmon, leek & potato traybake


  • 250g baby potatoes, thickly sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 leek, halved, washed and sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 70ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp capers, plus extra to serve
  • 1 tbsp chives, plus extra to serve
  • 2 skinless salmon fillets
  • mixed rocket salad, to serve (optional)



Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Bring a medium pan of water to the boil. Add the potatoes and cook for 8 mins. Drain and leave to steam-dry in a colander for a few minutes. Toss the potatoes with ½ of the oil and plenty of seasoning in a baking tray. Put in the oven for 20 mins, tossing halfway through the cooking time.


Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the leek and fry for 5 mins, or until beginning to soften. Stir through the garlic for 1 min, then add the cream, capers and 75ml hot water, then bring to the boil. Stir through the chives.
