Creamy Salmon Parcels

Using the microwave for this dish makes it super quick and keeps all the goodness in the veggies. 


2 salmon fillets

1 large leek, washed and sliced

70g fresh French beans

50g frozen peas

4 heaped tbsp Low fat crème fraîche,

plus 2 extra tbsp to serve

1 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon

Pinch LoSalt


Serves 2


  1. Start by preparing 2 large squares of greaseproof paper measuring approx 40cm each side. Place these on a microwavable plate.

  2. Mix the crème fraîche with the chopped tarragon and a sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of LoSalt in a bowl and set aside.

  3. Pop a fillet of salmon in the middle of each sheet and top with the leeks, French beans and peas.

  4. Now dollop 2 tablespoons of low fat crème fraîche mixture on top.

  5. Pull up the sides of the paper to make a parcel, twisting it at the top. Make sure you leave air circulation space inside.

  6. Microwave on full power for 5 minutes and leave to stand for 5 minutes before serving with an extra dollop of crème fraîche.


If you don’t have a microwave you can wrap in foil instead of baking paper and bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 180˚C. Do not use foil in the microwave.
