Then add the chopped leek and mix well. Cook uncovered until the leek is just tender but still nice and green.

Remove from the heat and keep hot.

Stage 5 - 4 min.

Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil into a frying pan and once this is nice and hot add the cubes of salmon. Cook for a bare 2 to 3 minutes, so that the cubes are browned on the sides. Do not cook any longer or you will end up with salmon purée.

Remove the salmon from the pan onto a plate and set aside.

Stage 6 - 3 min.

Arrange on the plates: lay a bed of leek and pour the salmon and sauce on top.

Serve without delay.

Remarks

If you don't have any yoghurt, you can replace it with cream, but this adds a lot more calories.

And to drink?

A Cretan dry white wine, like the Vilana variety typical of this lovely island.
