Utensils

Pot with Lid

Instructions

Boil the Rice
1
  • Add 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) to a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium, cover, and cook for 10 mins.
  • Remove from the heat.
  • Keep covered for 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Get Prepped
2
  • Meanwhile, remove the root and the dark green leafy part from the leek. Halve lengthways, then thinly slice widthways.
  • Trim the carrot, then quarter lengthways (no need to peel). Chop widthways into small pieces.
Start the Stew
3
  • Place a separate large pot over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, cook the carrot and leek until softened, 4-5 mins. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pick the thyme leaves and discard the stalks.
  • Add the thyme, stock and 100ml water (double for 4p).
  • Cover and simmer until the veg is tender, 4-6 mins.
Slice the Salmon
4
  • Meanwhile, remove the skin from the salmon. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw fish.
  • Chop into 2cm cubes.
Finishing touches
5
  • Once the veg is cooked, add the creme fraiche and mix well to combine. 
  • Scatter the salmon cubes over the stew.
  • Cover and cook for another 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.
  • Quarter the lemon.
  • Taste the stew and season with salt and pepper. Add a splash of water if you feel it's too thick.
Serve and Enjoy
6
  • Stir a knob of butter through the rice, fluffing it up as you go. Divide between plates.
  • Top with the leek and salmon stew.
  • Add a squeeze of lemon.
  • Serve any remaining lemon wedges on the side.
