Fresh tarragon to serve

Melt the butter in a small pan and add the garlic powder. Keep it on the heat until slightly boiling about 2 minutes.  

Add the pawns and cook for a further minute or two. Pour in the cream and bring it all to the boil for about 3 minutes.

Add the basil and cook for another 30 seconds.

Remove the pawns and place onto a clean plate.
