Akaroa boasts way more than a fancy French history, it's also home to some pretty fine tasting salmon. Here's a recipe that pays homage to this southern food icon.



  • 4 x 180-200g Akaroa salmon fillet portions
  • 500g yams
  • 800g pumpkin (peeled)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 25g butter
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 20 ml lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, medium ground
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 800g broccoli
  • 100g butter (herb butter)
  • 1 lemon (zested and juiced) (herb butter)
  • 2 teaspoons mixed herbs (herb butter)
  • 40ml avocado oil (herb butter)

  1. Top and tail yams and place in pot with diced pumpkin, bayleaf, salt and water to cook until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, make herb butter by mixing together butter, lemon and mixed herbs. Drain vegetables and add butter, cream and seasoning.
  3. Mash until creamy. Sprinkle salmon with sea salt, ground black pepper and lemon juice. Cook on flat grill or pan for 5 minutes on each side.
  4. Boil or steam broccoli. Arrange mash in the centre of plate. Place salmon skin down on mash and arrange broccoli around it.
  5. Top salmon with lemon herb butter and drizzle with avocado oil.
