Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling, salted water for 10 mins, or until tender. Drain well.
  2. Put the potatoes, onion and rosemary in a roasting tin and drizzle with half the oil. Roast for 10 mins.
  3. Add the salmon to the roasting tin and scatter over the lemon zest. Cut the tomato vine into four and add to the tin. Squeeze over a little lemon juice, then add the wedges to the tin.
  4. Drizzle over the remaining oil, then season well. Return to the oven for a further 10 mins, or until the salmon is just cooked through and the potatoes are crisp. Divide between 4 plates and serve immediately.
