Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Zest the lemon and cut into wedges. Mix together the crème fraîche, tarragon, garlic, lemon zest and a squeeze of juice, season to taste and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Bring a large shallow pan of salted water to the bowl and cook the green beans for 3 mins until just done. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain and cool under cold running water before tossing with the crème fraîche mixture.

  • STEP 3

    Bring the pan back to the boil, then turn the heat down to a very gentle simmer and slide in the salmon pieces. Poach for 8-10 mins or until cooked to your liking. Remove from the pan and put on kitchen paper before plating up. Serve with the green beans and baby new potatoes.
