    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 1 leek, thinly sliced



    Like garlic and onion, leeks are a member of the allium family, but have their own distinct…

  • 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


  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.

A great mid week meal. The salmon was very moist and the sauce had plenty of flavour. I used peas and sliced green beans as I don't like broad beans, added them 5 minutes from the end of cooking time. Will make again.

Really easy, tasty dish. I also used parsley at the end instead of chives and served with crushed new potatoes.

Loved it. Make sure it is adequately seasoned. Followed suggestion above and added parsley. Creamy and salmon tasting. Not at all bland like mentioned above.

This was a quick and delicious summery mid week meal. Served with mini new potatoes and sweetcorn. Will try with mash next time as I will definitely be making this again

This made a really nice dinner. I tweaked it a bit though. As we are not fond of broad beans, I stirred some cooked carrots in at the end. Also, I couldn't get hold of chives so used parsley instead. Was very good. Served with mashed potato.

Used sugarsnaps instead of broadbeans and added a little grated lemonrind to the sauce - turned out great! Rice instead of mash went down well w the kids.
