Simple Salmon & Leek Parcel in 5 minutes

After a nutritious and enjoyable meal but pushed for time or don't want to faff? Look no further than this superb, simple salmon recipe which takes only a short time to prepare and just 5 minutes to cook.

This was my go to quick and healthy meal when I was a student and didn't have much time or didn't want to spend ages cooking - and let's face it what student does?!

This nifty parcel is the perfect student supper or great for when you step in after a long day at work. You can even prepare it in the morning, leave it in the fridge and just pop it in the microwave when you want it for a super quick supper!

And it is super tasty too! Super, simple and satisfyingly good.

1. Season the salmon fillet and thinly slice the leek. Cut approximately a 40cm-square sheet of greaseproof paper and place the salmon fillet in the centre of it. Top it with the sliced leek, the peas and the creme fraiche. Sprinkle the tarragon on top and add some salt and pepper to taste.
2. Seal the paper parcel and stand it on a microwave-proof plate. Microwave on full power for 5 minutes. Transfer the contents of the parcel onto a plate and top with the extra spoonful of creme fraiche. Serve straight away.
