- Preheat oven to 200°C. Cut a cross into tops of potatoes. Place potatoes in the microwave and cook on high for 8 minutes. Place microwaved potatoes on a baking tray. Spray lightly with oil and bake in oven for 10 minutes, until browned and skin is crisp.
- In a small bowl combine yoghurt, mayonnaise, capers, olives, lemon zest and parsley to make mayo. Set aside. In a large bowl combine rocket and cucumber. Dress with vinaigrette made from olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Set aside.
- Heat a heavy-based pan over a high heat (or preheat a barbecue grill). Spray steaks with oil and cook for 2 minutes each side for medium rare, or until done to your liking. Remove from pan and rest for a few minutes before slicing thickly.
- Serve each steak with a baked potato and rocket salad, drizzled with caper and olive mayo.
