- Heat a non stick pan, add a knob of butter and fry the salmon fillets for 3 minutes on each side remove from the pan and rest on a plate.
- Leaving the butter in the pan, add the garlic, sun dried tomatoes and after a minute pour in the hot water and crumble in the stock cube and reduce for a few minutes (3!). Remove the pan from the heat until it stops bubbling then pour in the cream, honey, season well and stir, then add the spinach, basil and peas and return to the heat, cooking until the spinach has wilted and the peas are hot.

Go dairy free using cashew cream (homemade is 1 cup cashew nuts blended with about 400ml of water). Go vegan swapping honey for agave and cream for vegan alternative and use roasted butternut squash (roast squash steaks 30mins at 200c FAN) and add to sauce.
