It’s so easy to do a lovely bit of salmon for dinner. Like all fresh fish, it hardly needs any cooking. We live off fish; I go down to Cornwall with my daughter quite often to find the best varieties. It tastes best when you get it yourself! — Sheila Taylor


  • 1 side of salmon (about 100-150 g per person)
  • 30 g butter


Slice the fish into portions of the size you want. Warm up a grill pan with the butter in, then put the salmon fillets into the pan. It should be cooked perfectly after about 5 minutes. Sprinkle some salt and pepper over the fish, then squeeze on some lemon juice to your taste.

You can have whatever you want with this salmon because the flavours are so simple. I like corn on the cob or
