Salmon in Puff Pastry

Salmon in Puff Pastry

I have a passion for puff pastry. The magnificent flaky and buttery crust adds a special touch to even very basic ingredients to make any meal a celebration. Whenever I need a little perk up for my daily dinner rotation I buy ready-cut pastry squares and fill them with an array of things from fruit to fish. For this recipe, I wrapped up some simply seasoned salmon filets and let my Super Pot take care of the rest. The Super Pot gave the pastry a really beautiful crust with nice grill marks and let the fish inside steam to perfection.

Ingredients

4 salmon filets
4 pieces of puff pastry, large enough to cover fish
salt and pepper
1 egg whisked with 1 tsp water
parchment paper

Directions

Remove puff pastry from package and cut to size.

Sprinkle the filets with salt and pepper and place on one side of the pastry sheet.

Fold pastry over and crimp to close. Brush with egg and water mixture.

Preheat the Super Pot to 350 degrees and line the bottom of the pot with two layers of parchment paper.

Arrange salmon packets on the parchment paper and cover with the lid.

Cook for 30 minutes, flipping packets halfway through. Enjoy!
