Instructions

Make the Colcannon
1
  • Boil a large pot of salted water.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks.
  • Strip the leafy part of the kale from the stem. Tear into small pieces. Discard the stem.
  • Add the potatoes to the boiling water. Cook until fork tender, 12-18 mins. Add the kale in the final 2-3 mins of cooking time.
  • Drain in a colander and return to the pot. Mash together with a knob of butter and a splash of milk or water. Season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
Get Prepped
2
  • Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Halve, peel and chop the shallot into small pieces.
Start the Sauce
3
  • Place a separate pot over medium heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, fry the shallot until softened, 4-5 mins.
  • Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 secs.
  • Pour in half the apple cider vinegar (double for 4p) and allow to evaporate.
Simmer the Sauce
4
  • Add 1 tsp flour (double for 4p) to the pot and mix well to incorporate.
  • Stir in 100ml water (double for 4p) along with the stock powder.
  • Bring to the boil. Lower the heat and mix in 1 tbsp butter (double for 4p).
  • Simmer until the butter has melted and the sauce has thickened slightly, 1-2 mins.
  • Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.

TIP: If necessary, reheat the sauce just before serving.

Sear the Salmon
5
  • Place a pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Toss the salmon with Cajun spice, salt, pepper and a drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, add the salmon to the pan, skin-side down. 
  • Cook for 4-5 mins, turn over, and cook for 3-4 mins on the other side. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw fish. Fish is cooked when opaque in the centre.
  • When 2 mins of cooking time remain, add the peas to the pan and allow to warm through.
Finish and Serve
6
  • Divide the colcannon between plates.
  • Serve the Cajun salmon and peas alongside.
  • Drizzle the garlic butter sauce over the salmon.
