I can’t remember where we first got this recipe for salmon en croute, but it was a firm favourite of ours for a long time – mostly because it’s so simple! The sauce is nothing more than mascarpone blitzed together with spinach. The salmon fillets are wrapped in pastry with the sauce and you’re done.
Tonight's dinner is an old classic – salmon en croute. I used to make this regularly with ready made pastry but tonight I'm trying to make my own. #dinner #food #foodgram #foodporn #foodblr #foodgasm #instafood #instagay #salmon #pastry #spinach #mascarpone #salmonencroute #delicious #picoftheday #followme #vscocam
Normally I would have used ready made shortcrust pastry for this, but I got a bit cocky and decided to make my own. I won’t name the recipe I used but suffice it to say my pastry turned out much too dry and crumbly – it was near impossible to roll and definitely not suitable for wrapping anything in. But I tried all the same.
The end result was still nice tasting, just not very easy on the eyes.
