4 pieces of smoked salmon (approx 200g each)

2 large tablespoon of flour
150ml fresh cream
Salt and pepper
2 handfuls of parsley, chopped

Place the potatoes in a pot, fill with water to cover the potato and bring to boil. Simmer for 12-15mins (check if potato is cooked through). Place potato in a colander and run cold water over it to cool it down & set (this is done so the potato doesn’t crumble). Set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the drained butter beans and fry until golden in colour.
Plate up the salmon, beans and potatoes. Pour the cream over the potatoes and beans and its now ready to serve.
