Baked Salmon With Pesto Potatoes & Beans

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1kg chat potatoes, quartered
  • 4 x 220g salmon fillets
  • 4 thin prosciutto slices
  • Olive oil, to drizzle
  • 300g cherry tomatoes (we used vine-ripened)
  • 350g thin green beans, topped, not tailed
  • 1/2 cup (130g) basil pesto


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 8-10 minutes until tender. Drain.
  2. While potatoes are cooking, wrap a prosciutto slice around the middle of each salmon fillet. Place on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season. Bake for 5 minutes, then add tomatoes to tray, drizzle with oil and season. Cook for a further 4 minutes or until salmon is cooked.
  3. Meanwhile, blanch the beans in boiling salted water for 2 minutes. Toss drained beans and potatoes with pesto and serve with salmon and tomatoes.
