  • 100g full-fat crème fraîche or cream cheese
  • 6 sheets filo pastry
  • 2 skinless salmon fillets


  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the leeks into a large saucepan with 3 tbsp water and a couple of knobs of butter. Cover, then cook for 10 mins until tender. Remove from the pan, allow to cool, then mix with the crème fraîche and some seasoning.

  3. Brush both the parcels with melted butter. Put onto a lightly greased baking sheet, then cook for 20-25 mins until browned and crisp. Delicious served with a green salad.

This dish is lovly and very simple to make. The only criticism is that they are MASSIVE. Next time i will use 3 sheets & cut them in half, so its 3 sheets per 2 pieces of salmon and try that. We are big eaters and i couldnt finish it and the veg i did with it. My partner did and was stuffed to busting.

It was really nice, but I found it very fiddly. Having to butter each layer, and trying to avoid the parcels falling apart. Also, they were huge and very filling! But it ensures the salmon is cooked in a lovely way. Will be making this again.
