Cook potato in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 15 minutes or until soft when pieced with a knife. Drain. Return to pan and heat over low heat for 1 minute. Remove pan from heat and add 1/3 cup oil. Mash until smooth. Season. Set aside and cover to keep warm.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat 2 tsp oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook 2 Tassal salmon fillets, skin-side down, for 4 minutes or until skin is crisp. Turn and cook for 4 minutes or until salmon is cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with 2 tsp oil and remaining salmon.
