Wild Salmon with Jersey Royals and Watercress (4)

An early summer favourite from ” Lobster and Chips” by Trish Hilferty. The first wild salmon usually becomes available in early June, briefly overlapping with the time of year when smaller Jersey Royals are still available. Sea Trout or organic salmon can be used as an alternative, but I urge you not to use farmed salmon.

For the Watercress:
  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until tender, then drain and keep warm.

Fry for 3 minutes over a medium heat then turn the fillets over and cook for a further 2 mnutes. The salmon should be slightly underdone.
  3. Make te dressing by whisking together the lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil with some salt and pepper to taste. Toss with the watercress.
  4. Arrange the salmon and potatoes on 4 warmed plates and serve immediately with the salad on the side.
