Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and set aside.

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and add the potatoes.

Simmer for 15 minutes, then cool slightly.

Meanwhile place the salmon on the prepared tray and drizzle with the olive oil, season with salt and pepper then bake for 15 minutes until cooked through and the flesh flakes easily.
