Ever-so Easy Salmon En Croute

This recipe stretches 2 salmon fillets to a family of 4, and includes just 3 other ingredients (plus an egg to glaze the pastry) This recipe is good fun to make with children, especially making a pasty decoration for the top!

Prep: 5 mins

Cook: 40 mins

Serves 4




1. Trim the leeks, then wash and slice thinly. Put them in a frying pan with 2 tbsp cold water and cover and cook for 8-10 minutes until softened. Remove from the pan and place in a shallow bowl. Leave to cool and then remove the excess water so it’s not too wet. Stir in the soft cheese.

2. Preheat the oven to 180ºC fan. Unroll the pastry on the baking parchment it comes with, and place on a board. Skin both salmon fillets, pat dry, then put them side by side on one half of the pastry, leaving a 2-3cm border at the sides. Season the salmon.

3. Spoon the leek mixture over the fish. Brush the pastry edges with a beaten egg, then fold the pastry over the top of the fish and press the edges together to seal. Crimp with the back of a fork, and trim off the excess pastry. Glaze the top with the beaten egg. Cut a small hole in the top to allow air to escape as it cooks. Trim any excess paper, then place on a baking sheet, and bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden and cooked through.

Leave to rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with some salad or veg.
