We boost the flavour of this potato purée with olive oil and fresh parsley. On another night, make this dish with fresh sole fillets or scallops instead of the salmon, and call it the catch of the day. Serve with lemon wedges.

Ingredients

  • 4 skinless salmon fillets (about 4 oz/115 g each)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon caper rinsed, drained and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Potato Mash:
  • 1 1/2 lb yellow-fleshed potatoes peeled and cut in chunks
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Method

Potato Mash: In large pot of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and return to pot, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.

With potato masher, mash together potatoes, milk, parsley, oil, pepper and salt, adding as much of the reserved cooking liquid as needed for smooth consistency.

Meanwhile, sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. In nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook salmon, turning once, until fish flakes easily when tested with fork, about 8 minutes. Remove to plate; keep warm.

Add butter to pan; cook, swirling pan, until starting to brown, about 2 minutes. Stir in capers; cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Drizzle over salmon. Serve on potato mash.
