Lemon and Garlic Salmon with Leek
This recipe is really easy, really delicious and it’s good for you!
I serve the dish, inspired by my love of French food, with some new potatoes, dressed with olive oil and seasoned with dried herbs de Provence. The flavours are quite sweet and although the recipe contains a lot of garlic, it isn’t over-powering. This recipe will serve two adults and I use measuring spoons for the ingredients.
Anything that looks this beautiful and colourful before it’s even cooked, is bound to taste brilliant right?
