Salmon & leek parcels
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 2
Much easier than it looks, once you have mastered this salmon in filo recipe it will be a dinner party favourite
- STEP 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.
- STEP 2
To assemble the parcels, brush a sheet of pastry with melted butter, then lay 2 more sheets on top, brushing butter between each layer. Place a salmon fillet in the centre, season, then spoon over half the leek mix. Fold the ends over the top, pull up the sides and scrunch together to enclose. Repeat.
- STEP 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.
Keep any filo sheets you’re not working with covered with a just-damp tea towel to stop them drying out. Make sure you re-wrap any leftovers tightly in cling film.
