Recipes: Fish

The Saucy Fish Co. share some of their favourite recipes to cook at home

Salmon with rocket and crème fraîche dressing (pictured above)

Served with potato, courgette and raddish
Serves 2

What you'll need
1 pack of Saucy's salmon with rocket and crème fraiche dressing
300g new potatoes, washed and halved
1 pinch of salt
2 courgettes, top and tailed
2 radishes, top and tailed
A large knob of butter
1 small bunch of chives (optional)

How You Make It
Step 1: Place the salmon fillets on a baking tray in the centre of a preheated oven for 20 – 25 minutes.
Step 2: Meanwhile, thinly slice the courgettes and radishes and set them aside for later.
Step 3: Boil up a pan of baby potatoes – leaving the skins on for extra rustic texture.
Step 4: Once the potatoes are done, drain and dollop a knob of butter on top. At this point, if you want to get really cheffy, you can add some thinly sliced chives.
Step 5: Ribbon your courgettes and radishes, adding only the courgettes to a griddle pan on a high heat. Make your mark by pressing down gently for chargrilled stripes.
Step 6: Place your rocket and crème fraîche dressing packet in a mug of boiling water, this will only need a minute so you can start plating up.
Step 7: Mix together the potatoes, chargrilled courgettes and sliced radish and toss before serving onto your plates. Top this with salmon and drizzle with the creamy dressing.
