Salmon and Potato bake

I love this creamy fish dish- it’s Very easy to make and tastes great. If the amount of cream bothers you why not try it with creme fraiche instead. I don’t mind the occasional creamy recipe so we use full fat double cream!!


2 salmon fillets

800g of potatoes

4 handfuls of spinach

4 handfuls of frozen peas

One large red onion

Olive oil


200ml double cream

50-100g Gruyere cheese

Peel and slice the potatoes into 3mm pieces

Put in a pan of water, bring to the boil then simmer for 2-3mins

Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan and fry the onions on a medium heat for around 5mins

Drain the potatoes and leave to one side to cool

Add a tablespoon of flour and some salt & pepper and cook for another 2mins

In a pan wilt the spinach with the frozen peas (don’t add any water)

Slice the salmon

Grease an ovenproof dish with butter

Layer everything up- start with a layer of potatoes…

Then half the onions…

Half the salmon…

Half the spinach and peas. Repeat the layers and finish off with an extra layer of potatoes.

Pour over the cream

And grate the cheese on top. Pop into the oven at 180 degrees for 30-35mins


Toddler had hers with sweetcorn. Baby found it really easy to pick up the bits of potato with spinach stuck to it. Yummy!
