Salmon with tarragon Hollandaise Impress your other half with this 20 minute supper that takes little effort (but don’t tell them that)

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 salmon fillets, scaled, skin on, about 140g/5oz each
  • 125g pack asparagus tips, ends trimmed
  • 2 bunches cherry tomatoes on the vine
  • 1 tbsp chopped tarragon
  • 150ml hollandaise sauce, to serve (we used Joubére Fresh Hollandaise Sauce)

Method

Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat the oil in an ovenproof pan over a high heat. Add the salmon, skin-side down, then cook for 5 mins until the skin is crisp. Add the asparagus and vine tomatoes to the pan, then place in the oven. Cook for 7-10 mins until the salmon is just cooked through. Add the tarragon to the Hollandaise and stir through. Drizzle over the salmon, then serve.

Tia Maria & chocolate creams Just a few spoonfuls of this rich and creamy make-ahead dessert are all you need to end the meal with a flourish without overdoing it

Ingredients

  • 50g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa, broken into squares
  • 150ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp Tia Maria (or use another liqueur such as Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Kahlua)
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting Cantuccini or amaretti biscuits, to serve

Method

Put the chocolate into a bowl. Mix the cream with the Tia Maria, reserve 2 tbsp, then tip the rest into a saucepan and bring just to the boil. Remove from the heat and tip straight over the chocolate, stirring until the chocolate melts. Divide between 2 small glasses and allow to cool slightly. Whip the remaining cream until slightly thickened, then spoon over the cooled chocolate mix. Chill for at least 1 hr to set. While you’re waiting, cut a heart shape from a piece of thick card. When ready to serve, set the card over the glass and sift over a dusting of cocoa powder. Lift off carefu
