This was a hit at the dinner table yesterday and felt like the perfect dish for a sunny evening. I cheated and used the shop-bough puff pastry that you just roll out, so much easier and the pack did dinner for tonight too (will post about that tomorrow!)
Puff Pastry Top – Cut out a circle/square shape that you would like, glaze with a beaten egg or milk, bake in the oven for 20 mins or until golden, I did this in the morning so that I had less to do at dinner time, that easy!
Add to a pan the following:
250ml double cream
250ml white wine
1 tsp tarragon
1 x finely chopped onion
salt and pepper to taste
Simmer on the hob until the wine has cooked off (about 10 minutes), add more salt/pepper to taste if required.
In a seperate pan, add in the protein – I used 4 fish steaks (salmon, cod and haddock), chopped them into pieces and cooked in a drop of butter until tender before adding them to the sauce for a few minutes. You could use chicken, pork, tofu, mixed beans, quorn, vegetables etc as the creamy sauce is really versatile.
I cooked the asparagus by blanching them in a pan for a few minutes and then frying them with some butter and garlic – delicious!
