Giveaway - Day Two - A fishy Dish

Sorry for the delayed post today, life got in the way. While I'm here, I want to say thank you to the lovely readers who buy my books. I can't even find the words to thank you enough. I do know that your support means the world to me. So, because I'm happy, here's another easy recipe.

Today's recipe is one of the dishes Ade prepares at 'The Bay Horse'. If you happen to come by a nice slab of salmon then this is the recipe for you.

Salmon with a Dill Cream sauce.

Salmon fillets
Fresh Dill
Double cream (half and half if you live in the US).
Salt and Pepper

For the sauce:
One oz butter
One tablespoon plain (all purpose) flour
Double cream
More fresh dill, finely chopped.

Brush aluminium foil lightly with some olive oil.
Place salmon fillet(s) on foil. (If cooking more than one fillet, they each get their own foil package)
Dot fillet with butter (as much or as little as you like - it's your cholesterol)
Sprinkle with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Place as much or as little fresh dill on the fish as you like.
Wrap parcel so that there's a little room for steam do develop while the fish cooks.

Place in 180C oven.

While fish is cooking, make a roux with the butter and flour. Slowly stir in the cream until the sauce reaches the desired consistency. When you've got it where you want it, stir in the finely chopped dill.

Remove fish from oven, add the sauce and...enjoy.
Goes beautifully with fresh green  beans and lovely little new potatoes.
