  • Serves: 2
  • Cooking Time: 20 mins
  • Course: Main Course
  • Cuisine: Irish


  • 2 leeks, thinly sliced
  • 50g frozen peas
  • Drizzle olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 salmon fillets, skinned (approximately 150g each)
  • 2 tbsp Greek yoghurt
  • Fresh tarragon or dill


Preheat an oven to 180 degrees/gas 4.

In a bowl, mix together the leeks and frozen peas, along with a good glug of olive oil and the lemon juice. Season lightly and then put this mixture on the bottom of a gratin dish.

Top with the salmon fillets and spoon the Greek yoghurt and herbs over the top. Season the yoghurt and loosely cover with foil.

Bake for about 20 minutes. Be careful when you peel back the foil as you can get a nasty burn from the steam. It won’t look as appetising and vibrant as when you started colour-wise, but it’s a lovely dish that is incredibly easy to prepare.
