Oil for brushing
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 new potatoes, halved
2 tbsp prepared horseradish
100g chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp grated lemon rind
250ml fish stock
2 tbsp whole grain mustard
2 tsp minced garlic, plus 1 tbsp
100g Japanese-style bread crumbs (panko)
85ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 tbsp
2 tbsp rapeseed oil
4 - 6 salmon fillets, ( 2-cm thick)
450g mixed greens (chard, kale, mustard greens)
Juice of 1 lemon
1) Preheat the oven to 220/Gas 7. Coat a baking sheet with oil and sprinkle it with salt and pepper.

2) Place the potatoes, cut side down, on the tray and place in the preheated oven. Roast until just golden brown and tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the oven and keep warm.

3) Mix the horseradish, parsley, lemon zest, mustard and 2 tsp of the garlic in a small bowl. When it is evenly combined, add the bread crumbs and toss them gently. Drizzle 85ml of the olive oil over the crumb mixture and stir gently taking care not to break up the crumbs or make the mixture too heavy. Season the mixture, to taste, with salt and pepper.

4) Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper then heat the rapeseed oil in a saute pan over medium high heat. When the oil just begins to smoke, sear the salmon filets, topside down, 2 pieces at a time, for 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a lightly greased baking tin, placing the seared side up and repeat the process with the other 2 pieces of salmon.

5) Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the top of the fish creating an even layer 0.25 to 0.5cm thick. Roast the salmon until the crust is golden brown and fish is just firm, approximately 5 to 7 minutes.

6) While the salmon is baking, bring the fish stock, remaining tbsp olive oil, and remaining tbsp of garlic to a boil in a non-reactive saucepan. Then add the greens, cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the greens are wilted. Add the lemon juice and season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

7) Arrange the greens in the center of 4 shallow bowls surrounded by the roasted potatoes and braising liquid. Top each with a roasted filet of salmon. Serve at once.
