From the freezer some salmon fillets and spinach. From the ever-so-trendy basket a red onion and a few potaotes, while the fridge relinquished a pot of double cream and a lump of Gruyere. Damn lucky really as that was exactly the ingredients required. Anyone would have thought I had shown forsight and engaged in a little pre-shopping planning (ie writing a list). Far from it. Sheer fluke.

Salmon Potato Bake

Oven to 180C/Fan160/G4.
Boil the potatoes, cut into 3mm slices (like mine are anywhere near 3mm!) and boil for 2 – 3 minutes. Drain. Heat a little olive oil in a pan and gently fry the red onion, sliced, for 5 minutes then stir in1 tbsp plain flour. Season.

Wilt a few handfuls of spinach in a pan then squeese out any excess liquid. BUtter an ovenproof dish and build layers of potato, onion and flakes of 3 salmon fillets, then the spinach and end with a layer of potato. Pour over 200ml double cream and top with grated Gruyere.
Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden and bubbling. And so says Delicious magazine.

Serve with any dry white wine. In my case a superb Rhone white, specifically Alain Voge ‘Fleur de Crussol’ 2007 Saint-Peray (an oak aged Marsanne).

Maryann let me know that all fish-related recipes are welcome to her Seven Fishes event; this entry duly entered.

    Mmmm, looks like my kind of dish, and (except for the Gruyere), these are things you will almost always find in my fridge…
