Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220ºC/Fan 200ºC.
  2. Spread the potatoes and garlic in a single layer in a large, shallow roasting tin. Add the oil and toss the tray to coat the potatoes evenly.
  3. Place in the oven and roast for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, using a Y-shaped peeler, peel the courgettes into long ribbons – stopping when you get to the seedy centre.
  5. Lower the oven temperature to 200ºC/Fan 180ºC. Mix the potatoes with the courgette ribbons and tomatoes. Place the salmon fillets on top of the vegetables, drizzle with pesto and roast for a further 15 minutes until the fish is just cooked through.

Save the seedy bit of the courgette to add to a soup or pasta sauce
