I'm a big fan of some Waitrose recipes, after all, Rowley Leigh writes for themingredients
so long as they don't say "open a jar of Barts..."
Inspired when my husband asked if I could make the dish on the 10 foot poster featured at the Waitrose fish counter
Here's what I came up with....................
fresh salmon fillet (organic), a whole salmon would be great as a roast
potatoes, new ones, or sliced maris piper, par-boiled till nearly done
1 heaped teasp fennel seed
I or 2 quartered lemons
1 glass wine - I used water last night it made no difference
s & p
leave the skin on, & scale your salmon fillet if needed.
soften your potatoes,
lay salmon on top of potatoes and lemon pieces
mix fennel, wine or water, cream, dill, s & p and the juice of half a lemon
pour over the dish
dribble salmons with ev olive oil
cover with foil & bake for 40 mins at 180, till golden
For added luxe, pour more cream in the dish and shake.
