Leeky salmon in a parcel


Assemble the parcels a few hours ahead, zap in the microwave, and that's supper ready


Ready  in 15-2 mins                     Easy                   Serves 2  




salmon  fillets, 140g/5oz each

1 medium or 2 small leeks, about 200g/8oz in total

50g frozen petits pois

4 heaped tbsp crème fraîche, plus 2 tbsp to serve

1 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon




Season the salmon fillets all over. Slice the leeks really thinly. Cut two 40cm square sheets of greaseproof paper and put a fillet in the middle of each sheet.

Top each fillet with leeks and peas, and 2 tbsp of crème fraîche. Sprinkle with tarragon and salt and pepper.

Make up parcels with the paper and stand them on a microwave-proof plate or tray. Microwave on full power for 5 minutes. Put the contents of the parcels on two plates and top each serving with a spoonful of crème fraîche. Serve with new potatoes.


Recipe from Good Food magazine, March 2004


Recipe Tip:


If you prefer to cook the parcels in the oven, they will take 15 minutes at fan 170C/ conventional 190C/ gas 5.


Tip:  “Made this again this evening and used leeks, peas and courgettes.  My 7 year old has declared this to be his favourite dinner.  It is so easy that he can make it on his own , which he loves doing, especially as he can make it for his friend too”.
