Step 1Put the gnocchi into a baking dish and nestle the salmon fillets in between – everything should fit fairly snugly.
Step 2Mix together the cream, milk, lemon zest, thyme leaves, parmesan and mustard, and season well.
Step 3Add the frozen spinach to the baking dish and pour over the cream. Cover and chill for up to 12 hrs.
Step 4Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/ gas 7 and bake for 20-25 mins, giving it a gentle mix halfway to break up the spinach, until the gnocchi is tender and the salmon is cooked through. Serve with a salad.
