  • Freshly ground black pepper : 6 Turn

Method
  • 1For the salmon en croute

    Preheat the oven to 190'C.

    Lay one sheet of pastry on to a lined baking sheet and then place the salmon on top.

    Place the ricotta, watercress, wild garlic and the chilli in a food processor. Season with salt and pepper and then blend to a smooth, green puree. Spread this mixture over the salmon and then cover with the second sheet of puff pastry. Press the pastry down and seal the edges, trimming any excess pastry if necessary.

    Beat the egg together with a little water and then brush this egg wash on to the pastry. Score the pastry, transfer to the oven and bake for around 20 minutes. The pastry should be nice and golden brown.

  • 2For the vegetables

    Use a vegetable peeler or a mandolin to slice the cucumber into ribbons. Chop the dill, reserving a few sprigs to use as a garnish. Combine the sugar, salt, vinegar and rapeseed oil and then dress the cucumber. Fold in the dill and leave to marinade. Drain before serving.

  • 3To serve

    Cut the salmon en croute into slices and serve with the cucumber salad.

Chef's tip

«Make sure your salmon is cooked by putting a knife into the middle of the parcel - if it comes away hot, the fish is ready.»

Fillet salmon topped with a watercress, wild garlic and ricotta puree before being wrapped in puff pastry and open baked. This flavoursome dish is served with a refreshing cucumber and dill salad.
