Maple Syrup Marinated Salmon With Potato Rosti



Salmon fillets
Maple syrup
Potatoes
Salt & pepper
1/4 of a teaspoon of ground nutmeg
Green peppercorns
1/2 a cup of light cream
A lemon

Debone your salmon fillets and marinate in 1/4 cup of maple syrup per two fillets for 40 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 180C and place salmon on a lightly oiled baking tray. Cook until done, around 30-40 minutes.
In the mean time scrub two large potatoes, place them whole in a pot of water and bring to the boil. Cook for 10 mins, drain and let rest until cool enough to handle easily. Peel and grate the potatoes into a bowl they should be just cooked on the outside but hot and firm in the middle. Add salt & pepper and 1/2 a teaspoon of ground nutmeg. Mix well, make into fritters and fry in a little oil turning only once to ensure they stay together.
Simmer cream and green peppercorns together very gently until it thickens a little (you must watch the sauce the whole time it is cooking and stir frequently to prevent sticking) then remove from the heat and whisk in a little lemon juice and zest.
Serve the salmon and rosti with green vegetables and the peppercorn sauce.
