Directions

  1. to start with, take the potatoes - more or less if desired, adjust ingredients amounts to suit how many people are being catered for - peel & rinse them.
  2. slice the potatoes into relatively thin slices & then place into a saucepan with lightly salted boiling water.
  3. par boil for about 10 minutes approx' or until slightly soft.
  4. meanwhile, rinse the salmon & then chop into small chunks.
  5. once the potatoes have boiled sufficiently, drain them off & then place potatoe slices into an oven proof dish, overlapping each other.
  6. on top of that, add a generous amount of the salmon chunks & season to taste.
  7. once done, add milk to a saucepan & bring to the boil.
  8. grate your strong cheddar cheese.
  9. once boiled, add cornflour to a cup with a little amount of milk in the bottom & stir thoroughly to form a smooth paste.
  10. then, slowly add the milky paste a little at a time to the boiling milk - being sure to keep stirring the whole time to avoid lumps.
  11. repeat this action until the milk has thickened to become 'sauce' like.
  12. when it does, add the garlic, red chilli, mustard, strong cheddar cheese & fresh parsley & stir thoroughly until nice & smooth.
  13. bring back to the boil & then reduce heat & simmer for 5-10 minutes more until all the flavours have infused together, stirring all the time to ensure there are no lumps in the sauce.
  14. again, season to taste if need be, stir again then pour over the potatoes & salmon chunks in the oven proof dish.
  15. grate a generous amount of fresh parmesan cheese over the top & then place in a pre-heated (190C degrees approx') oven for 1 1/2 - 2 hours or until fully cooked.
  16. you can crisp the top up if you like using the grill.
  17. once cooked, remove from the oven, garnish with a little more parsley & serve! --
