Serves: 4
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 1 hour

Salmon is packed full of healthy fats including omega 3! The fat is essential for brain, eye and heart health. Paired with crispy, roasted potato chips this meal is the perfect dinner for a warm summers night!

 
ingredients

4 Atlantic salmon fillets (from the body of the fish not the tail, buy without skin on to reduce the cost).

Fresh lemons as required for basting.

Salt, to taste

8 small kipfler potatoes

Olive oil to drizzle

Salt, to taste

Paprika or mixed fresh herbs to taste, optional

Method

  1. Wash the potatoes very well removing any soil.

  2. Boil the potatoes for 20 minutes in salty water over the stove.

  3. Preheat the oven to 220°C/428°F or 200°C/392°F if fan forced.

  4. Remove the potatoes from the boiling water and leave to cool for a few minutes. Peel (optional) and slice the potatoes into ~ 6 chip slices.

  5. With a fork scrape along all the sides of the potatoes to roughen up the sides. This will allow the oil and salt to go into the crevasses for extra flavour and help crisp the chip.

  6. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes and sprinkle with sea salt. Now you can also add in your fresh herbs or sprinkle paprika if you choose.

  7. Toss to coat the potatoes.

  8. Place the potatoes in a tray lined with backing paper and put into the oven for 20-30 minutes. Turn the grill on for the last 5 minutes to give them and extra golden colour.

  9. Remove and serve while warm.


Hints
