Instructions

Roast the Potatoes
1
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). Pop the chunks onto a lined baking tray. 
  • Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through. 

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Get Prepped
2
  • Meanwhile, roughly chop the chives (use scissors if you prefer). 
  • Zest half the lemon (double for 4p). Chop the lemon into quarters. 
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Trim the carrot, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Chop into roughly 1cm wide, 5cm long batons.
  • Pop the carrots onto a large (lined) baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
Cook the Carrots
3
  • When the potatoes have been in the oven for 10-15 mins, pop the carrots onto the middle shelf.
  • Roast until tender, 20-25 mins. Turn halfway through.
Fry the Fish
4
  • Meanwhile, place a large pan over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp butter (double for 4p).
  • Season the salmon with salt and pepper.
  • Once the butter has melted, carefully place the salmon into the pan skin-side down. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish.
  • Cook for 6-7 mins on one side before turning over and cooking for 6-7 mins on the other side.
Baste in Butter
5
  • Add the chives, paprika and garlic to the pan along with the juice of 2 lemon wedges (double for 4p).
  • Spoon the chive butter sauce over the fish for 1-2 mins, then remove the pan from the heat. IMPORTANT: The fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.
Finish and Serve
6
  • When everything is ready, plate up the salmon with the roasted carrots and potatoes alongside.
  • Spoon the melted butter and chive sauce from the pan over the salmon.
  • Sprinkle with the lemon zest to finish.
  • Serve with any remaining lemon wedges for squeezing over.
