  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 red pepper, de-seeded and cut into thick squares

  3. Boil your new potatoes, whole with their skin on for 20 -25 minutes, until cooked through.
  4. As you put your potatoes onto boil heat your grill and when ready cook your salmon for about 10 minutes (it will depend on its thickness and cut).

  6. Finish your ratatouille with a dash of red wine vinegar, a twist of black pepper, the fresh basil, the olives and Parmesan.* 
  7. Simmer for a further 3 minutes just until the olives are cooked through and serve along with the salmon and potatoes.
