Method

  1. Cook the broccoli in lots of boiling water until tender. Drain and rinse in cold water until cool. Drain well and set aside. In a mini chopper or food processor, blitz the watercress and crème fraîche with some seasoning.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Unroll the pastry sheets. Place one on a baking sheet. Cut out a 2cm-wide border from the second sheet, like a picture frame, and stick this onto the first sheet with some of the beaten egg. Prick the base all over with a fork. Bake for 10 mins until golden.
  3. Cut remaining pastry into 2cm wide strips. Spread on the crème fraîche, scatter with the flaked salmon, broccoli and seasoning, and top with the strips of pastry to make a lattice.
  4. Brush with beaten egg and cook for 20-25 mins until pastry is golden and cooked through and the filling is hot. Serve with green beans.

Quick, easy and tasty. As others have said, it's just as easy to poach your own salmon (microwave in clingfilm for 3 mins).

Made this for supper last night. Delicious!! and it looked very professional. Good enough for entertaining. The only slight changes I made were to poach my own salmon and add a squeeze of lemon juice and some finely grated zest to the watercress and creme fraiche mixture. I think this migh tsolve the " blandness" that other reviewers have mentioned.

I didn't want to use two rolls of pastry so cooked it as a tray bake. I mixed garlic puree, mixed herbs and plenty of black pepper into the creme fraiche instead of using watercress. It was really flavoursome. Finished off before cooking with juice of half a lemon and a drizzle of olive oil.

A bit bland if I am being honest, need someting extra (not quite sure what that is though!)

I have been having trouble finding poached salmon, could I use regular salmon fillets or would they not work with the recipe?

This was so tasty, and we all enjoyed it.
I also made some extra watercress sauce I think it may be too dry without it.

Great recipe, would highly recommend. Only reason for 4 stars is that the watercress and creme fraiche sauce was a little bland and will probably tweak next time. Otherwise great.

I too did not bother with the 'picture frame' of pastry - I just bought a ready rolled sheet, cut a couple of inches off one end and scored a border round the large piece and then used the smaller piece to cut into strips for the lattice effect. I also didn't bother blind baking. I really liked the flavour combination and watercress sauce was dead easy and a good idea for future recipes.

This was easy to make, I cheated a bit and didn't bother to add the 'window-frame' op pastry on top just folded over the edges of the rolled out bottom layer (looked the same and much less fiddly), The whole thing looked just like the picture and was very tasty. I was glad the water-cress didn't over-power the delicate salmon flavour. I served with new potatoes and a grean salad. Will make again soon!

This was delicious, everyone loved it. I served it with roast potatoes and carrots - will definitely make again.

Really very good. I used a block of puff pastry and rolled out. Looked very attractive when it came out of the oven. Served with green beans.

Lovely for a Saturday lunch with a rocket, watercress and spinach salad.

Despite loving all the ingredients this just didn't work for us. Won't make again. The watercress didn't come through strongly enough over the pastry. Looked lovely whilst making it. Possibly the first disappointment from this site in over 4 years.

Very good indeed and very easy. Made exactly to recipe and end result looked like picture, which is unusual for me. Served with a hot watercress sauce (creme fraiche and watercress), mixed green beans and potatoes. I think it could have been a bit dry without the watercress sauce; hence only 4 stars. Really recommended - with the sauce!

I shall be trying this!

This was quite easy although lining up the top 'frame' of puff pastry was a bit tricky. Looks very impressive so worth the effort - even the fussy teens tried it!
