    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat oven to 160 C / Gas 3.
    2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to the boil. Add potatoes and green beans, cover and steam until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.
    3. Brush the shiny side of 2 large pieces of foil with 1 teaspoon olive oil each. Place salmon skin-side down in the centre. Brush remaining olive oil and garlic over salmon. Sprinkle dill on top. Divide lemon slices over salmon; squeeze 1/2 lemon on top. Season with 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/3 teaspoon salt.
    4. Cover salmon with 2 pieces of foil, shiny-side down. Roll foil inwards on all sides to create a pouch. Transfer pouches to a baking tray.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until salmon flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 12 minutes.
    6. Mix mayonnaise and capers together in a small bowl to make a tartar sauce. Stir in juice from 1 lemon, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
    7. Serve steamed potatoes, green beans and tartar sauce alongside salmon.
