Salmon en croute

Salmon en croute 


Puff pastry (bought or made)

Salmon fillet,

Mustard and spinach


With the puff pastry down place salmon on top

Spread evenly with mustard and top with spinach

Then add more puff pastry, close the edges and crimp using the back of a knife

Beat an egg and then lightly brush the pastry, or brush with milk

Sprinkle with salt and pepper

Heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6

Bake the salmon for 20–25 minutes, until the pastry turns a golden brown and crisp

To test to see if it’s ready, insert a skewer into the middle

It should feel warm for medium cooked salmon

A skewer that is piping hot indicates that the fish is well done

Leave it to rest for 15 minutes before serving

    1. Yes, I agree with you. Out of all my recipe photos, this one is my favourite photo. It’s easy on the eye.

      As you say it’s ‘a lovely simple recipe’ to make. I do simple well.

    1. Thanks Tim… yes, salmon is a really good source of omega 3 that’s good. I’m eating less these days, but when I do I prefer roast to poached.

      I’m not keen on any salmon smell. Sadly, that’s a sensory issue but at least I know now.
