Try this quick and easy dinner of seasoned salmon fillets infused with garlic and lemon zest and served with pan-fried potatoes

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp groundnut oil
  • 500g (1lb) potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and sliced
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 300g (10oz) salmon fillet, cut in 2
  • About 15g (½oz) butter
  • Finely grated lemon zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp capers, drained and rinsed

Method

  • Heat the oil in a heavybased pan and fry the potato slices gently for 5 mins, until they are browned underneath. Turn them and cook for about 5 mins, until golden on the other side. Push them to one side of the pan, so that they continue cooking gently. Add the garlic.

  • Season the salmon. Add the butter to the clear side of the pan. When it has melted, put in the salmon fillets, skin-side down. Cook for a few mins, then turn them over, sprinkle with the lemon zest and cook for a few more mins until the fish is tender.

  • Stir the parsley and capers into the potatoes. Squeeze lemon juice over the fish and then flip it back, skin-side up. Serve with the potatoes.
