115g / 4 oz sliced salmon
2-3 fresh thyme sprigs
150ml / 1/4 pint double cream

Meanwhile, using a sharp knife, cut the smoked salmon into thin strips, about 5mm / 1/4 inch wide. Strip the leaves from thyme sprigs.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Stir in the cream with about a quarter of the salmon and thyme leaves, then season with pepper. Heat gently for 3-4 minutes, stirring all the time. Do not allow to boil. Taste the sauce for seasoning.
