Grilled Salmon with New Potato Salad


4 pieces salmon
1 lemon
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Salad leaves
Olive oil to dress

For the potato salad

1 lb new potatoes, gently boiled or steamed
1 tbsp finely chopped spring onion
3 tbsp mayonnaise mixed with 1 tbsp crème fraiche
1/2 tsp brown sugar
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp chopped mint
1 tbsp chopped parsley

Slice or roughly chop the cooled potatoes, place in a large bowl and add the rest of the ingredients.  Mix well and refrigerate until needed.

Season the salmon with salt and pepper and place under a pre-heated grill and cook for approx 4 minutes each side depending on the thickness of the fish.  The flesh should be soft and opaque in the centre.

Serve warm or cold with potato salad and a crisp salad dressed with lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper.  Garnish with a wedge of lemon.
