Here’s what to do… 

  1. Melt the butter in a pan, add the flour, then gradually add the milk, whisking to give a smooth sauce. Simmer for a few minutes until it thickens, remove from heat and stir in the cream cheese and dill.
  2. Whisk the egg whites until stiff.
  3. Beat the egg yolks one at a time into the sauce, then fold in the egg whites, chopped salmon, lemon zest and season. Fill each ramekin dish.
  4. Place the ramekin dishes into a roasting dish and pour boiling water around them, halfway up their sides.
