Ingredients

  • 320g sheet ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 1 egg yolk, to glaze
  • 2 skinless salmon fillets
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • large handful baby spinach
  • mixed leaves tossed with your favourite dressing, to serve

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a large baking sheet with baking parchment. Unroll the pastry sheet and score a border about 1cm from the edge. Prick the middle area with a fork all over and glaze the border with the egg yolk. Bake the pastry for 15 mins until puffed up and almost cooked.

  2. Meanwhile, put the salmon fillets in a microwaveable dish and cover with cling film. Cook in the microwave on High for 2 mins until just cooked. Set aside to cool for 1-2 mins, then flake into chunky pieces. Mix the crème fraîche with the mustard in a small bowl and season.

  3. Take the pastry out of the oven and flatten the middle area with the back of a spoon. Cover the base with the crème fraîche sauce, then scatter the spinach and salmon flakes over. Bake in the oven for a further 5 mins or until the pastry is cooked and golden. Serve with dressed mixed leaves.

Love this! So easy and so tasty! Served with sweet potato wedges and salad. May wilt spinach separately next time - as has been previously stated, it doesn't look fantastic after just being in the oven and this way I think I'll be able to get more on as well!

I didn't have wholegrain mustard so I used English mustard and it was really tasty. Very easy and quick dinner to make. Even my kids ate it! I served it with new potatoes and avocado salad. The spinach didn't look great after being in the oven so next time I might wilt it separately instead. Will definitely try again.

I didn't fancy the mustard so switched it for dill and added cherry tomatoes- love it

Delicious. I didn't have any spinach so added thinly sliced cooked mushrooms to the top instead. Also used more creme fraiche for the base, personal taste as I love creme fraiche.

Delicious! Made extra sauce (and added a bit of dill) to make a potato salad to go with it. Even my 6 month old little boy enjoyed having a go!

Delicious and quick meal. Served it with salad and new potatoes as an alternative to quiche. Will definitely make again.

This was gorgeous. Easy, quick, and delicious. Great thing to knock up for a summer meal. I added some home-made basil pesto that I happened to have on hand, and it worked well.
