  1. Preheat the oven. Season the salmon with salt and pepper, place on a baking tray (skin side down) and roast in the oven for 12 minutes, or until cooked through.
  2. While the salmon is in the oven, cook the new potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1/2 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan and fry the onion for 2-3 minutes, or until soft. Add the cream and vegetable stock, bring to the boil, and simmer for 2-3 minutes until reduced by half. Add the lemon juice, season to taste with salt and pepper, and set aside. Remember to keep an eye on the salmon in the oven.
  4. Once the potatoes are cooked, lift them out of the water with a slotted spoon and mix in a bowl with 1/2 tbsp olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper and the mixed herbs. Use the water from the potatoes to cook the peas according to the packet instructions.
  5. To serve, lay the roasted salmon fillet on a plate with the new potatoes and peas, and pour over the sauce.
