Baked Salmon with potatoes and beans

Recipe from Jamie Oliver

You will need:

2 salmon fillets
100g baby Jersey Royal New Potatoes
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
a large handful of green beans
extra virgin olive oil
1/2 lemon, zested and juice
2 handfuls pine nuts
To serve on the side:

1 handful rocket leaves
1 handful baby spinach leaves
2 tbsp natural yoghurt mixed with 1 tsp dried mint

Make it!

Preheat the oven to 230ºC/495ºF/gas 8.

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, add your new potatoes and cook for 10 to 12 minutes until they are nearly done.

Add the beans to the pan and cook for another 4 minutes. Then drain the potatoes and beans in a colander.

Put them into an appropriately sized roasting tray and add a little drizzle of olive oil, the zest and juice of the lemon, and scatter the pine nuts over. Season lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper and toss together while still warm so the flavours are absorbed.

Place the salmon fillets on top and cook in the preheated oven for about 10 to 15 minutes until the salmon is just cooked.

Serve on a plate with the green beans and potatoes, a nice piece of salmon steak and some of the lovely cooking juices from the bottom of the tray which are like a ready-made sauce.
