Hello, dear readers! Today, I have a real delight to share with you: Seafood Surprise: Salmon En Croute with Puff Pastry. This dish is an absolute showstopper, combining flaky puff pastry, succulent salmon, and a flavorful creamy filling. Let’s get cooking!


  • 1 package (about 17 ounces) of frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 salmon fillets, skinless and boneless
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup of spinach, fresh or frozen (thawed and squeezed dry if using frozen)
  • 1/2 cup of cream cheese
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)
  • Fresh dill for garnish


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until the onion is translucent. Add the spinach and cook until just wilted. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a bowl, mix the cooled onion, garlic, and spinach with the cream cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out your thawed puff pastry into a large rectangle, then cut it in half to create two rectangles.
  5. Spread half of the cream cheese mixture in the middle of one pastry rectangle, then lay a salmon fillet on top. Repeat with the second pastry rectangle and the other salmon fillet.
  6. Fold the pastry over the salmon, tucking in the edges to seal. Make sure the seam is at the bottom. Transfer your salmon parcels onto the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Beat the egg in a small bowl, then brush the pastry with the egg wash. This will give it a nice, golden shine.
  8. Bake in your preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden and the salmon is cooked through.
  9. Allow your salmon en croute to rest for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh dill and serve immediately.

And there you have it, your Seafood Surprise: Salmon En Croute with Puff Pastry! This dish is perfect for impressing guests or enjoying a fancy meal at home. Enjoy, and happy cooking!
