Recipe: Salmon, Dauphinoise Potatoes & Vegetables

We love Salmon and because it’s so easy to fry with a nice crispy skin it makes it quite versatile, this is why we add it to so many of our recipes. However, the real reason that we wanted to do this recipe is because we have potato a lot but we rarely do anything other than mash or chips and so we really wanted to come up with another delicious potato dish to put in the rotation. The Dauphinoise does make this recipe a little longer than it you were having mash but is totally worth it.
