Creamy Fish in a Bag

Surely one of the easiest ways to cook fish. Cooking it in the bag keeps it moist.


  • 2 x 150g fresh fish fillets, such as smoked haddock, cod or salmon

  • 1 leek, thinly sliced

  • 8 tbsp frozen peas

  • 4 rounded tbsp crème fraiche

  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill

  • 2 tsp lemon juice

  • salt and pepper

  • To serve

  • new potatoes


  • 1.

    Put each piece of fish in a large greaseproof paper or multi-purpose cooking bag. Scatter over some leek, peas and a tablespoon of crème fraiche. Season with salt and pepper and set the bag on a plate, tucking the ends under the fish. 

  • 2.

    Microwave in the bag one at a time on high for 3-4 minutes until the fish is cooked. Meanwhile mix the remaining crème fraiche with the dill, salt and pepper. Tip the fish and vegetables onto a warm plate and top with a spoonful of crème fraiche. Grind some black pepper over the top and serve with new potatoes.
