FavoriteLoadingAdd to My Recipe Book

Recipe Ingredients

  • 450g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1,5cm cubes
  • 1/4 cup water
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 170g baby spinach
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 4 pieces skinless centre-cut salmon fillets (150g each)
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tsp capers, rinsed
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped

Recipe Directions

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine potatoes, water and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cover with clingwrap and pierce; microwave on high for 9 minutes or until tender, stirring halfway through. Add spinach; re-cover and microwave for 2 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile, sprinkle cayenne pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt on salmon. In a 30cm nonstick frying pan on medium, cook salmon for 10 minutes or until knife pierces centre easily, turning over halfway through. Transfer to a plate. Finely grate 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest onto fish; squeeze 1 tablespoon juice into a cup.
  3. To frying pan, add wine and capers. Boil on high for 2 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half, scraping browned bits from pan. Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice and parsley.
  4. Divide potato mixture among plates; top with fish. Spoon sauce over fish.
