Cook the Jersey Royals in lightly salted boiling water until just tender – about 15 minutes. At the same time, cook the broccoli in a small amount of boiling water for 5-6 minutes. Drain well.
Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan oven 170°C, Gas Mark 5.
Put the salmon chunks into a bowl and add the cornflour and some seasoning. Toss together to coat the salmon lightly, then transfer it to a 1.2 litre (2 pint) baking dish. Add the broccoli florets.
Beat the soft cheese until smooth, then beat in the milk and chopped herbs. Pour over the salmon and broccoli.
Slice the Jersey royals and arrange them on top of the salmon mixture. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with black pepper. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the Jerseys and lightly browned.
Pile the crushed potatoes and top with the cod and a pile of the reserved bacon. Pour over the dressing and serve
Tip: This is a great recipe for using up Jersey Royals that you’ve cooked the day before.
