Lemon and Lime Salmon with tarragon cream

Outside in my mini herb garden I have some lovely tarragon plants (and a lot of mint but that is another story!) so to use it up we bought some fresh salmon and decided to bake it with butter, lemon and lime before serving salmon with tarragon cream.


One Salmon Fillet per person
One knob of butter per salmon fillet
Slices of lemon and lime (I used a couple of slices of each on each fillet)
1 shallot, finely diced
1 cup white wine
1 cup vegetable stock
200ml double cream
1tbsp chopped tarragon

Charred Avo & Eggs

Foodie Friday is back! As Shakshouka is one of my favourite egg dishes, this Jamie Oliver recipe appealed to me and is now on the list of things to try.

Super quick and super healthy. We often treat ourselves to a nice breakfast either Saturday or Sunday, but usually struggle to find something new that we’ll all like. Plus it usually ends up …
