From Australian Good Food - I've been told to eat fresh salmon at least twice a week and this looks good so saving it here.
- 800 g baby potatoes
- 1⁄3 cup olive oil (80ml)
- 2 tablespoons plain flour
- 3 teaspoons sea salt (flakes)
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons peppercorns (cracked mixed)
- 4 (160 g) salmon fillets (skin on)
- 1⁄4 cup white balsamic vinegar (60ml)
- 1 small red onion (cut into thin wedges)
- 1 bunch chives (cut into 4cm lengths)
- 2 tablespoons dill (roughly chopped)
- 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise (75 grams whole egg)
- 1 lime (finely grated rind or zest of)
- 1⁄2 lime (juice of, use 1/2 of the lime you zest)
- Preheat oven to 220C or 200C fan forced.
- Cook potatoes in boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes until just cooked and drain and cool for 5 minutes.
- Using a fork, gently flatten potatoes and place in a roasting pan and drizzle with 2 tablespoon of oil and season with salt and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until crisp.
- Combines the mayonnaise ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Combine flour, sea salt and cracked pepper and dust the flesh sides of the salmon in the flour mixture.

- Whisk vinegar and remaining olive oil and add warm potatoes, onions and herbs and season with salt and pepper.
- Place smashed potatoes on serving plates and top with salmon and serve with lime mayonnaise.
Wow, I wish we had these kind of recipes around me! I adored this!....in every single way. Let me tell you why....first off; I followed this exactly, except dusting the salmon in flour. (duh! I forgot) however, this is the only difference. Everything was perfect. I cooked my taters' on top of my wood-stove - slowly - first boiling them as the author suggests, then putting them in a pan and cooking them with the rest of the ingredients. I quickly seared the salmon - then put that atop the lovely golden potatoes- and it was just heavenly! This is truly a more then 5 star recipe - so easy with all the taste you could and can imagine! Great for company, and easier the pouring a glass of warm milk before bedtime. Enjoy life, enjoy food, and enjoy your friends!
