  1. Chop the leeks into 1 inch cylinders and wash in ice water, place in a shallow saucepan and add half the butter, a touch of water and a pinch or sea salt, pop into a preheated oven @ 170C for 20 minutes or until leeks are tender to the touch, take out and set aside

  2. In another pan add your wine, mussels, half a chopped shallot and a sprig of your dill, pop a lid on and steam for 4 minutes or until all mussels are open, pass through a sieve but remember to keep the cooking stock and return it to the pan, add your fish stock and reduce by 2/3rds and pick the mussels from the shells and set aside.

  3. In a preheated frying pan add your Salmon skin side down and allow to cook until golden, do not turn it over, pop into your preheated oven for 8 minutes, take out, turnover and set aside to rest

  4. When your stock has reached a nice broth consistency whisk in the rest of the cold butter and bring up to eating temperature, add your picked mussel meat, and a good hand of roughly chopped dill, pop your butter braised leeks into a bowl and add your broth, popping the salmon on top to finish the dish and finish with a nice drizzle of olive oil to add a bit of richness
