  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 leek, thinly sliced
  • 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


Chicken with greens & tarragon for 4
Swap the salmon fillets for 4 skinless chicken breasts. Allow 25-30 mins cooking time for the chicken, and stir in the broad beans and peas with 2 tbsp chopped tarragon for the final 10 mins of cooking time.


  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.
