  • 500 g waxy potatoes peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion peeled and chopped
  • 60 g spinach chopped
  • 25 g corn flour
  • 200 ml skimmed milk
  • Freshly grated salt and pepper
  • Low calorie cooking oil spray
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets about 400g worth, cut into bite size chunks


  • Pre-heat oven to 180c Fan.
  • Cook the potato slices in boiling salted water for about 5 minutes, then drain them in a colander or sieve and place to the side to cool. While the potatoes are cooking, follow the rest of the instructions below.
  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and gently sauté the onion for about 5 minutes until soft. Stir in the baby spinach and once it has wilted stir in the flour and skimmed milk. Continue stirring until it thickens for about 2 minutes then season to taste.
  • Spray the bottom of an ovenproof dish with the cooking spray, spread the salmon chunks around and empty the contents of the pan over the salmon distributing evenly.
  • Top the salmon mixture with the potato slices and spray the top of the potatoes evenly using the cooking spray.
  • Bake in the centre of the oven for about 45 minutes until the potatoes are brown and crispy.
