What is tarragon?

Tarragon is an aromatic plant mainly cultivated in the Mediterranean basin, which offers an extremely favourable climate for its development. Long used for therapeutic purposes, it was then favoured by the Indians, whose emperor used it as a drink with fennel. It was only in the Middle Ages that tarragon arrived in Europe and that its fragrant flavours were discovered. Today it has become an indispensable aromatic plant that many people grow in their gardens. Tarragon is a plant named Armetisia dracunculus or dragon herb. We consume the dried leaves that can be integrated into various hot or cold preparations. However, hot, tarragon will develop all its flavors to give another dimension to your dishes.

Our recipe ideas with tarragon

Eggs casserole with asparagus and tarragon

For our starter of the day, I propose you eggs cocotte which marry perfectly with the tarragon. Scrape the asparagus and cook them in boiling water for about 7 minutes after boiling. Drain them, reserve the heads and cut the stalks into slices that you will place in a ramekin with a mixture of cream and parmesan previously seasoned with salt, pepper and tarragon leaves. Place the asparagus tips on the sides and break an egg in the middle. Cook in a bain-marie in a hot oven for 7 to 8 minutes.

Cod in tarragon sauce

Chicken is a great classic, so I suggest you prepare a fish to enjoy your tarragon leaves. Cook your back of cod in boiling water with salt. In parallel, prepare a sauce made of cream, butter, finely chopped shallots, lemon and tarragon. Accompany your fish with tarragon with potatoes and broccoli, you get a meal full of flavor.

Carpaccio of strawberries with tarragon

You know the association strawberries - basil, I suggest you try a new alliance. Cut your strawberries into strips and arrange them in a flower on a plate. Make a syrup by mixing sugar and water in a saucepan until you get a syrupy texture. Grate a few Tonka beans (not too many as the taste is quite strong). Add a little Timut pepper and place some tarragon leaves. The freshness of this aromatic plant and its aniseed flavours will give another dimension to your strawberries.
