Salmon with Rocket and Crème Fraîche Dressing

What's not to love about salmon? It's tasty, quick to cook (so ideal for mid-week suppers) and nutritious. It's a favourite go-to ingredient for the Heart Home team and we're always on the look out for new ways to serve our favourite fish so were delighted with our latest recipe of  oven-baked salmon with a rocket and creme fraiche dressing. 

Serve with new potatoes, courgettes and radishes and a sprinkling of chives for a Michelin star quality dinner in no time.

Serves 2:


2 salmon fillets

150ml crème fraiche

Handful of chopped parsley

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

Sea salt and cracked black pepper, to season

½ lemon, to zest


Place the salmon fillets on a baking tray in the centre of a preheated oven for 20 – 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, thinly slice the courgettes and radishes and set them aside for later.

Boil up a pan of baby potatoes – leaving the skins on for extra rustic texture.

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.

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 char-grilled stripes.

For the dressing, mix the crème fraiche and rocket in a bowl, adding a pinch of salt and pepper, finishing with a generous squeeze of fresh lemon

Mix together the potatoes, char-grilled courgettes and sliced radish and toss before serving onto your plates. Top this with salmon and drizzle with the creamy dressing.
