  • 250ml chicken or fish stock
  • 100g crème fraîche
  • 140g frozen peas
  • 140g frozen broad beans
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • small bunch chives, snipped
  • mash, to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large, deep frying pan with a lid. Cook the leek for 5-10 mins until soft but not coloured, then pour in the stock. Simmer for a few mins until reduced slightly then add the crème fraîche and season. Cook for 1 min more.

  2. Tip in the peas and beans, nestle in the salmon fillets, then turn down to a simmer and cover. Cook for 12-15 mins, depending on the thickness of the salmon, until cooked through. Sprinkle on the chives and serve with mashed potato, if you like.

Absolutely delicious! Much nicer than I thought, considering how simple it is. Found the instructions absolutely spot on, including timings. I used French beans instead of broad beans, and next time would probs double everything except the salmon, as found I could have eaten far more veg - was so tasty! Served with mashed potato, but may try pasta next time, just to mix it up.

Good quick and easy family meal. Kids love it with salmon and also the chicken. I also add mange tout to the pan for the last few minutes. Serve with Broccoli, and asparagus and with boiled new potatoes or rice

I made this using and onion instead of a leek, adding some frozen spinach and instead of mash stirred through some tagliatelle at the end and it worked quite well again using all the sauce for only two else wouldn't have been enough for the pasta. Would def make it again!

This recipe is great! Simple and delicious! I've been looking for a simple fish dish and this is perfect. I use a large leek and add very thinly sliced garlic to the sliced leeks. Rather than broad beans and peas, I used french beans and frozen mixed vegetables. I also used the full amount of liquid for 2 fillets and that was fine. Served with little roasted charlotte potatoes -yum!

Oh my goodness .. this was delicious!! I had to give the Salmon 5 minutes longer than recommended as the fillets seemed quite thick and I put frozen Soya Beans in place of the Broad Beans just out of family preference, and served with steamed home-grown Charlotte Potatoes, and it was so, so good. It is definitely a "keeper"! And, we think it's equally as good as the roast salmon with peas, potatoes and bacon also from this site.

This was very nice and very simple to make. Didn't have beans so used broccoli and served with crushed new potatoes. I cooked this for two but left the liquid volumes as they are for four. Glad I did - it gave us plenty of sauce. Going to use a fish pie mix next time.
