Salmon en Croute (Puff Pastry)
It is easy to make, esp for dinner parties as you can make them in advance then bake them when needed.
See the bottom of the recipe for Gluten free and Lactose free options as well as alternatives for Vegans & Vegetarians
You can use any fish or filling in this dish, you can even make a roasted pepper and mushroom version for vegetarians.
Makes enough for 4 portions or 1 long one.
CHEFS TIP…This can be made in one big long piece then cut when baked, assemble it on baking tray lined with parchment if you do this.
I haven’t seen gluten free puff pastry so try it without pastry. Please post in the comments if you know of a gluten free pastry.
Make the sauce but don’t allow it thicken so much, place the salmon fillets into the sauce and cook.
If using asparagus add it to the sauce when you add the salmon.
Use lactose free cream instead of creme fraiche then follow the recipe as normal.
Use roasted peppers and sliced aubergine and Courgette with softened chick peas instead.
Vegans, use white butter beans and blend with 1 garlic clove and 2 tsp lemon juice instead of the creme fraiche. Cook the veg and not the bean sauce until in the pastry
