1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
30g butter salt and pepper Tarragon hollandaise
4 egg yolks

220g unsalted butter
34 tsp chopped fresh tarragon leaves salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas Mark 7.
Bake the fish for 3040 minutes until just cooked.

Cook in salted boiling water with a sprig of tarragon for four minutes then drain thoroughly. When the salmon is ready reheat the cucumber in the butter season and stir in the parsley. Spoon around the salmon.
Make the hollandaise quickly in the food processor when the salmon is nearly ready.
Heat the butter until it has melted and is hot but not beginning to colour.
Mix the egg yolks water salt pepper and a slug of lemon juice or vinegar in the processor until smoothly amalgamated.
Keep the blades whirring and start to add the butter in a slow trickle.
When you have incorporated about half add a little more lemon or vinegar then carry on with the butter increasing the flow slightly.
Stop pouring when you get to the cloudy sediment at the bottom.

Stir in the tarragon then taste and adjust seasoning adding more tarragon if it needs it.
Pour into a bowl and set over a pan of hot water to keep warm making sure that the base of the bowl is not in contact with the water.
