  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Toss the potatoes in a large roasting tin with 1 tbsp olive oil and a pinch of sea salt; roast for 45 mins or until golden and crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, halve the cucumber, scrape out and discard the seeds, then finely slice into half-moons. Put in a bowl with a small pinch of sea salt, the juice of ½ a lemon and a drizzle of oil. Scrunch everything together, then set aside to pickle.
  3. Finely slice the salmon, then put in a mixing bowl with the soft cheese. Beat together until smooth, then season generously with black pepper. Grate over the zest of the remaining lemon half and squeeze in the juice.
  4. Snip half the cress onto a board and finely chop, then add to the smoked salmon pâté and mix well.
  5. Divide the watercress between 4 plates and spoon over the lemony pickled cucumber. Arrange the roast potatoes on top, carefully busting them open. Top the potatoes with dollops of the smoked salmon pâté, snip over the remaining cress and serve.

Tip: Swap salmon for smoked mackerel, if you prefer.
