The Cooking Stop: Salmon, Baked Potato, Peas & Sweetcorn

20 Mar, 2024

We stick to one-step cooking processes as much as possible, but this Salmon, Potato, Peas, and Corn dish is one that my daughter has found easy. The potato is cooking while the other parts of the recipe are prepared so although it has a few ingredients and two cooking methods the process is still very simple.

Other Suggestions

You could also put teriyaki sauce or hoisin sauce over the salmon after it is cooked.


While this recipe is a little more involved than some my daughter makes, using the air fryer and the microwave it is broken down into steps which makes it easy to do. It is also a balanced meal that supports creating healthy eating habits.
