I got the inspiration for this from a dish I often eat at my favourite hotel in Dublin, whenever work takes me over that way. Their slightly more rib-sticking version made me fall in love with spiced carrot mash. A match made in heaven.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
5 large carrots, sliced
2 large salmon fillets
2 large handfuls spinach
small knob butter
1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
2 sprigs fresh parsley, finely chopped
lemon wedges, to serve
sea salt
black pepper

Method

  1. Put the carrots in a small pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10–15 minutes, or until tender. An even better option, if possible, is to steam them, which retains more nutrients.
  2. Preheat the grill to high. Put the salmon fillets on a baking tray and cook under the grill for 8–10 minutes, or until beginning to turn golden brown, turning them during cooking.
  3. Put the spinach in a pan with few tablespoons water, place over a high heat and cook, covered, for 3–4 minutes, or until wilted. Drain well.
  4. Drain the cooked carrots and place them in a large bowl. Mash them with a potato masher. Add the butter and mixed spice, season with salt and pepper and mash again until the texture is smooth. Stir through the chopped parsley. To assemble, put the spinach in the centre of a plate, place the grilled salmon on top, and add the mash next to it. Serve with lemon wedges.
