Salmon and buttery leeks!
  • 1 middle piece of Atlantic Salmon
  • 1 Leek sliced 
  • 1 bunch Broccolini
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • Thyme sprigs
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 100 degrees celsius
  2. Slice the leek into rings and place in a container and set aside. Peel and chop the garlic and set aside with the thyme sprigs. 
  3. On some greaseproof paper place the salmon fillets down and lightly oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in the oven for 30 minutes for medium-rare cooked salmon.
  4. Bring a medium-sized pot up to medium heat and add the butter and olive oil. When it starts to bubble place in the sliced leeks and stir to coat in the butter and cook for 5 minutes then add in the garlic and thyme, season with a little salt and pepper. Keep an eye on this as it could burn and keep stirring occasionally.
  5. Place another pot on the stove full of water and bring to the boil, in the last 10 minutes of the Salmon being ready, place the Broccolini in the water and blanch. 
  6. Take the Salmon out of the oven and set aside to rest while you plate up the buttered leeks and Broccolini, place the Salmon on top of the leeks and enjoy.
