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

Method

  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.

  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.

  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.

Sorry but this is far too much for 2 people. Looking at the photograph the leeks do not look at all finely chopped. If I were to try this again I would not use anything like the amount of filo pastry recommended (unless the ones I bought were extra large). This recipe (in our house) would feed 6 and then shout hello to the salmon and leeks.

Suggested cooking times were perfect. This went down a treat. I served with the green salad recommended on the same page and it was delicious. I chose quite large pieces of salmon, so for 2 it was very filling. I would cook it again for 4 with potatoes as a side. If you prefer stonger flavours you might wish to add more seasoning.

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.
