A note about serious food allergies

Basil gets all the pesto love, cilantro all the soapy concerns, parsley's in everything, but everyone's sleeping on tarragon, the herb that sounds like it's on a geometry quiz. Tarragon's power and deliciousness are showcased in this lovely crema, with lemon bringing the citrus. The salmon and the crema go together hand-in-hand, making for an all-star outing for hexagon… we mean, tarragon.
