No Count Spicy Salmon with Sweet Potato

A really easy dish to make.  Hubby loved this one, and it’s free on No Count!

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • a tbsp 0% Yeo Valley crème fraiche
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • small tomatoes, can be on the vine


For the sauce:

  • half a red onion, finely chopped
  • 150ml fish stock
  • the remainder of the 200g tub of 0% Yeo Valley crème fraiche
  • 2 tsp harissa paste
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice



  1. Put the salmon and tomatoes in a pre-heated oven (180C) for about 25 mins.
  2. Cook the potatoes. When ready, mash, with the tbsp crème fraiche and season well.
  3. To make the sauce: cook the onions for 5 mins in a small pan that has been sprayed with Frylight. Add the fish stock, lemon juice and harissa paste and simmer for a further five mins. Taste and season.  Stir in the crème fraiche and allow to heat slowly – don’t let it boil or it will curdle.
  4. Serve and enjoy!

  1. Fabulous! Thank you, that was lovely. Thumbs up from the whole family, though I did use half fat crème fraiche instead of o%!

    1. Hi and thank you Lynda, it’s good to hear you enjoyed this one. Sometimes it’s worth spending the points on half fat creme fraiche:-) Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Helen xxxx

    1. Hi Angie, I’ve just made this dish for the family tonight and they all loved it. I haven’t tried it with fat free Greek yogurt but I’m sure that would be OK. Hope you enjoy it, Helen xxx

  2. Hiya. I love salmon and when doing no count, it’s a staple. Looking forward to trying this! One question. Do you make ur own fish stock or buy it pre made? Thanks!
