  • slice the potatoes into relatively thin slices & then place into a saucepan with lightly salted boiling water.
  • par boil for about 10 minutes approx' or until slightly soft.
  • meanwhile, rinse the salmon & then chop into small chunks.
  • once the potatoes have boiled sufficiently, drain them off & then place potatoe slices into an oven proof dish, overlapping each other.

  • once boiled, add cornflour to a cup with a little amount of milk in the bottom & stir thoroughly to form a smooth paste.
  • 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.
  • repeat this action until the milk has thickened to become 'sauce' like.
  • when it does, add the garlic, red chilli, mustard, strong cheddar cheese & fresh parsley & stir thoroughly until nice & smooth.
  • 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.
  • again, season to taste if need be, stir again then pour over the potatoes & salmon chunks in the oven proof dish.
  • 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.
