  1. Wash the leeks then finely slice them. You can use both the white and green part. Melt the butter in a small pan on medium heat. Gently cook the leaks for 5 min. Add the double cream and lemon juice. Simmer gently for about 10 min for the cream to thicken. Spoon in the creme fraiche/greek yoghurt and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook the salmon fillets to your liking. Serve with creamed leeks and boiled baby new potatoes
