Our 30 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Roast the vegetables

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.

    Toss the cauliflower and potatoes in some oil on a baking tray with the ROASTED VEG SEASONING and cook in the oven for 20 mins. Meanwhile, continue with step 2.

  • 2.

    Make the sauce

    Heat some oil in a pan over medium-low heat and fry the shallots for 6-8 mins, or until golden.

    Add the KERALAN PAN SAUCE and 50ml water and stir well for 2 mins over a medium-low heat.

    Add the creme fraiche and cook for 2-3 more mins, so it thickens slightly. Turn it off and keep warm.

  • 3.

    Cook the salmon

    Sprinkle the NIGELLA SEED RUB over the salmon and press it into the fillets.

    Once the veg has had 20 mins, put the salmon on the same tray and cook in the oven for 10 more mins.

  • 4.

    Cook the spinach

    Just before the salmon is done, fry the spinach in an oiled pan for 2 mins, until lightly wilted.

  • 5.


    Serve the salmon and veg with the sauce drizzled over.

Absolutely gorgeous - our new favourite!

Ray - Feb 15, 2019

Once again another delicious meal, but the heat rating is completely wrong. This meal was easily one of the hottest recipies. Not one of the milder meal. This means that this is another meal my wife won't trust. Maybe Simply Cook will answer this comment or ignore me again.

Carol - Feb 15, 2019

Amazing dish. One of our favourites.

Emma - Feb 14, 2019

Even the cauliflower was amazing and that is the most hated veg in my house

Erin - Feb 04, 2019

Not big of fish but was yummy ????

Jackie - Feb 03, 2019

Love this!

Nikki - Feb 01, 2019

This wasn't the cheapest option as the salmon fillets were pricey. I made the recipe stretch to feed 2 adults and 3 children I substituted the double cream for coconut milk as we have one with a dairy allergy and the curry didn't thicken but it was still very nice

Melanie - Feb 01, 2019

Fantastic flavours, easy preparation, fast to the plate

Farha - Jan 28, 2019


Jennifer - Jan 28, 2019

The potatoes had 40 mins in total and were still pretty hard. Also would rate this as medium spice, not mild! Nice though

Charlotte - Jan 25, 2019

Very tasty dish

Jason - Jan 20, 2019

Superb tasting recipe, the salmon rub is gorgeous and I generally dislike salmon. Definitely one I will order again.

Gabrielle - Jan 19, 2019

Absolutely loved this meal. Before I forget the shopping list on the app states 100ml double cream, which I bought. However, the recipe on the paper card states 150ml creme fraiche. Fortunately, when I got on with recipe at home and discovered discrepancy I actually happened to have creme fraiche in my fridge. Clearly an oversight, but needs addressing for future,m. Very flavoursome meal and proportions right. It needs the spinach as part of meal, the timings are correct. Would definitely consider having this again.

Natalie - Jan 19, 2019
