Potatoes with salmon | Krumpir s lososom

I found this recipe in a Croatian cookbook, and I think it’s a great one dish wonder. I cut my potatoes and carrots with a slicer to get the thickness consistent and I think I added too much water, the recipe says half the ingredients should be covered by water, but I’d say a quarter and then add as needed. You can replace the salmon with any other fish fillet you like.

It looks like there isn’t that much salmon here, but there really is!


~ One kilo of any good baking potato, peeled and sliced

~ 400 grams salmon fillets

~ One large carrot, peeled and sliced

~ One bunch Italian parsley, chopped

~ 100 grams button mushrooms, sliced

~ One large onion, diced

~ Two cloves garlic, pressed

~ Two tablespoons plain flour

~ One tablespoon sweet paprika

~ One tablespoon Vegeta

~ 30mls extra virgin olive oil

~ salt and pepper, to taste

Potatoes used were from my garden


  1. Pre-heat a fan forced oven to 180°C (356°F)
  2. In a large bowl place all the ingredients, except the salmon, and gently mix everything together by hand.
  3. Transfer all the ingredients into a large baking dish. Pour enough water to coat and cover half the ingredients.
  4. Cover with foil and place in the oven for 40 minutes.
  5. Remove the baking dish from oven and snuggly place the salmon fillets into the mixture, take the foil off and bake for a further 30 minutes, or until potatoes are done. At this stage, also check if the mixture needs more water and add as needed.
  6. Remove from oven, and serve with hot crusty bread
