I know people think salmon en croute is very complicated but honestly it’s really easy. I’ve shown the step-by-step instructions below, as demonstrated by my 9 year old, who made it for dinner the other night. If she can do it so can you!
⭐1 side salmon
⭐All Butter puff pastry
⭐Blitzed or chopped rocket and dill
⭐4 egg yolks
Cover the salmon with cream cheese.
Sprinkle with blitzed (or chopped) rocket and dill, lemon zest and salt.
Fold the pastry over to enclose the salmon. Cut any extra pastry off and seal the edges by pressing down with a fork. Cut lines to let steam release and paint a layer of egg yolk over the surface.
It can be stored in the fridge for a few hours or cooked straight away. Bake at 190c for about 15 mins, or until golden. It will depend on the size of your salmon.
Step 5 While it’s in the oven make the sauce. Blitz 2 yolks in a jug with a handheld stick blender. Pour over 100g hot butter mixing well. Stir in 2 tbsp lemon juice. Pour over the salmon, serve with lemon wedges and sprinkle with dill or chives. Et voila!
