Get Started

The chocolate pots will take 2-3 hours to set so we'd recommend getting them prepared earlier in the day. However, they'll still be delicious if you only leave them in the fridge for a few minutes. Either way, make your pudding (all 3 steps) before you start cooking your main.

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 1/2 tsp salt.

Peel and slice the potatoes into 1cm thick slices. When boiling, add the potato slices to the water and simmer until just tender, 8-12 mins.

Once cooked, reserve some of the potato water (see pantry for amount), then carefully drain in a colander.

Finish the Prep

Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). 

Pop the breadcrumbs and mixed herbs into a bowl with the olive oil for the crumb (see pantry for amount). Season with salt and pepper, then mix well. 

Lay the salmon fillets, skin-side down, onto a lined baking tray and spread 1 tsp of creme fraiche on each fillet. Spoon over the breadcrumb mixture, pressing it down with a spoon. Set aside. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish.

Make the Creamy Sauce

When the potatoes are cooked and drained, pop your (now empty) pan back on medium heat with a drizzle of oil.

When hot, add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 secs.

Add the remaining creme fraiche, veg stock paste, reserved potato water and half the hard Italian style cheese. Mix together, bring to the boil, then remove from the heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Bake your Dauphinoise

Lay the cooked potato slices in layers in an appropriately sized ovenproof dish, then pour over the creamy sauce.

Bang the dish carefully a couple of times on a hard surface to get any air bubbles out. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

Bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden brown and bubbly, 15-20 mins. TIP: Put the dish on a baking tray to catch any drips.

Bring on the Broccoli

When the dauphinoise has baked for 5 mins, pop the salmon on the middle shelf to bake until golden, 10-15 mins. IMPORTANT: The fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat.

Once hot, add the Tenderstem® and stir-fry for 2-3 mins.

Add a splash of water, then cover with a lid (or foil) and allow to cook until almost tender, 2-3 mins more.

Finish and Serve

Once the broccoli is almost tender, add the sugar snap peas to the pan. Season with salt and pepper, then cover again and allow to cook until tender, 2-3 mins. 

When everything's ready, carefully transfer the salmon to your plates.

Serve the dauphinoise, broccoli and sugar snaps alongside. 


Start your Pud

Pour the coconut milk into a medium saucepan and pop on medium-high heat. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 1 min.

Remove from the heat and immediately add the chocolate chips and a pinch of salt.

Allow to sit for 1 min, then stir together until the chocolate is melted and well combined.

Get Set

Pour the mixture into appropriately sized glasses/ramekins. TIP: Put these in the fridge beforehand to chill if you're in a rush.

Cover with cling film and pop into the fridge to set - they'll take 2-3 hours to fully set, but will still be delicious if you want to eat them straight away.

Toasting Time

Remove the pistachios from their shells and roughly chop.

Wipe out the (now empty) saucepan and pop on medium-high heat (no oil). Once hot, add the pistachios and dry-fry, stirring regularly, until lightly toasted, 3-4 mins. TIP: Watch them like a hawk as they can burn easily.

Once toasted, remove from the heat. Add the honey and a pinch of salt to the pan. TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min. Stir together, then transfer to a bowl.

When ready to serve, spoon the nuts on top of the chocolate pots.
