From GoodFood 101 Fish and Seafood Dishes
Serves 2
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.

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