Serves 4

Ready in about 1 hour 30 minutes


4 large baking potatoes, skins pricked

Low-calorie cooking spray

2 tsp dried dill

2 skinless and boneless salmon fillets

150g small cooked, peeled prawns (defrosted if frozen)

2 tsp capers, drained and rinsed

For the savoy cabbage slaw:

1 small onion, finely chopped

300g savoy cabbage, finely shredded

3 large gherkins, diced

1 tsp mustard powder

1 tbsp lemon juice, plus 4 wedges to serve

150g fat-free natural yogurt


1 Preheat your oven to 220°C/ fan 200°C/gas 7. Spray the potatoes with low-calorie cooking spray and roll in the dill. Put on a non-stick baking tray and cook for 25 minutes. Reduce the heat to 190°C/fan 170°C/ gas 5 and bake for 1 hour, or until the skins are crisp and the flesh tender.

2 Meanwhile, to make the slaw, put the onion in a sieve and pour over freshly boiled water – this gives a milder flavour. Mix with the cabbage and two-thirds of the gherkins. Make a paste with the mustard and lemon juice, add the yogurt and stir well. Stir it through the slaw to coat.

3 Put the salmon in a microwave proof dish with 1 tbsp water. Cover with cling film, make a small hole, and microwave on high for 5 minutes until opaque. If not quite cooked through, repeat in 30-second blasts until done. Allow to cool.

4 Cut the potatoes into quarters, divide between 4 plates and top with the slaw. Flake over the salmon, then scatter with the prawns, capers and remaining gherkins. Serve each with a lemon wedge for squeezing over.
