Salt-and-Butter Salmon & Potatoes

As long as we're talking about fish, here's an easy recipe for salmon:
(Serves 4)
3 cuts of salmon
2 medium potatoes
1 tbsp butter
100 ml water
  1. After cleaning the salmon, sprinkle both sides thoroughly with salt and pepper, and let sit for 15 minutes.
    Instead of fresh salmon, I actually used leftover smoked salmon, which still turned out perfectly fine and allowed me to skip this step altogether.
  2. Cut the potatoes into sixths (or eighths, if your potatoes are large), and let sit in a bowl of water for 15 minutes.
  3. Fry (pan-fry?) the salmon in butter (margarine), then add the potatoes, making sure to allow the butter to coat everything.
    Using smoked salmon makes the first part of this step pretty minimal.
  4. Add the 100 ml of water and let cook for 10-15 minutes (lid on) until the potatoes are soft and the water is essentially gone.
  5. If necessary, add more salt and pepper to taste.
This is a fast and easy way to prepare salmon, and using smoked salmon not only makes everything even easier but almost eliminates the need to add any salt.
