Method

Salt the potatoes and allow to sit for 30 minutes, rinse well and pat dry. Place in a small saucepan and cover with light olive oil. Bring to a simmer and turn down the heat, cook really gently until just tender.
Combine the vegetable stock, wine, lemon and peppers and bring to a gentle simmer. Allow to infuse for 30 minutes. Season the Norwegian salmon with flaky salt on both sides and leave for 15 minutes. Wipe off any excess salt and place in the poaching liquid, making sure the fish is covered. Heat to 90℃ and then turn off the heat. Cover and leave the fish to cool in the poaching liquid for 15 minutes. Check the fish is just cooked, still pink in the centre.
Drizzle the oil over the cut sides of the lettuce and season well. Char in a ridged grill pan until well marked. Place a lid over the lettuce to allow it to wilt slightly.
Combine all the dressing ingredients and season to taste.
Remove the salmon from the poaching liquid and flake into large pieces. Place the lettuce in deep bowls, drain the still-warm potatoes and season. Scatter between the bowls. Divide the salmon between the bowls and spoon over the dressing.
