Pesto salmon with sweet potato

by Charlotte Watts

Pesto adds a new flavour to salmon, but also lots of cholesterol regulating garlic. Sweet potatoes are a great alternative to the usual baked potato and take less time to cook.

Serves 2

2 medium sweet potatoes
2 salmon fillets or salmon steaks
2 tbsp pesto sauce
Half a head of broccoli
Butter to serve


  1. Heat the oven to 220oC/ Gas Mark 7.
  2. Prick the sweet potatoes and put in the oven on a baking tray.
  3. Lay the salmon fillets or steaks in a close fitting glass cooking pot (with a lid).
  4. Spoon the pesto onto the salmon and spread out over the fish.
  5. Add the lid to the cooking pot and put into the oven 20 minutes after the sweet potatoes.
  6. Steam the broccoli for 3-4 minutes to be ready at the same time as the fish.
  7. Remove both the salmon and the sweet potatoes after a further 20 minutes.
  8. Slice the sweet potatoes lengthways, fluff up the flesh and mix in a little butter.
  9. Place the salmon, sweet potato and broccoli on a large heated plate and serve.
