Salmon Fillet with French Peas

Wednesday is my food shopping day, I am trying to run the freezer stock down a bit, so I can fill it with Christmas goodies. I keep a bag of Aldi frozen Salmon fillets as a standby, and that’s what I am using.

I also have some Baby Gem Lettuce to use up, and some salad potatoes, so French  peas and Herbed Salmon Fillets 😍

Heat the oven to 200 and place the salmon fillets, onto an oven proof dish with a squirt of olive oil, I have coated the Fillets in a cheese and herb breadcrumb mix, I had in the freezer left over from weeks ago, cook for 15-20 minutes

I started by par boiling some new potatoes and slicing them. Peel and chop a medium brown onion, and gently fry off in butter and olive oil.

Add the sliced potatoes and cook till slightly browned, then add frozen peas and a pinch of black pepper and 200ml of veg or chicken stock. Leave to simmer for 10 minutes, till the potatoes are soft.

Just before serving, add a splash of double cream to the potato and pea mix, then add the sliced Lettuce. Taste and season.

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
