I feel like I don’t eat enough fish. It’s so good for you and because I do not eat red meat, it is a great alternative. Fish can be expensive compared to meat but the cheapest and best place to buy it is your local fishmonger. If you don’t have a fishmonger near you, the fish counters at the supermarkets mark the price down just before shutting but you have to be quick! This recipe is supposed to be a take on a salmon en croute but that sounds far too posh for me so I will go with salmon slice! It is a bit more pricey than my normal meals but it’s a pay day treat!
Serves 2-4 depending on what you serve it with.
Costs £1.32 a serving
1 large puff pastry sheet or 2 small
2 tbsp pesto
1 medium onion, finely chopped
- Preheat oven to 220C. Grease a baking tray and put to one side.
- Cut the pastry sheet into two. Place the salmon in the middle, spread the pesto and then put the onions on top of the fish. Fold the edges of the pastry around the fish. Press firmly and then brush the pastry sides with milk. Place the other half of the pastry on top, cut to size and then push the sides down with a fork or with your thumbs. Make slits in the top and then brush with milk. Place on the greased baking tray and cook for 30-35 minutes.
- When cooked, leave on the side to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
