Salmon En Croute Recipe

Salmon En Croute is a French classic dish that usually served on special occasions. The word “croute” means “crust”, so it means “salmon in a crust.” This is an attention-stealer main course especially that it is at the centerpiece of every party.


• 11 oz skinless fillet salmon
• 2 eggs (beaten)
• 30 grams fresh basil leaves
• 25 grams pecorino cheese
• 150 grams cream cheese

• 4 cloves garlic (diced)
• 1/2 small red onion (finely diced)
• Olive oil
• Salt and ground black pepper to taste
• Plain flour
• Frozen puff pastry (thawed)


For the basil sauce:
Prepare a blender.
Put fresh basil leaves and 2 cloves of garlic in.
Blend well.
While pulsing, pour olive oil gradually.
Add pecorino cheese, salt, and ground black pepper to taste.
Pulse again until texture is smooth.

For the salmon:

On a clean surface, dust with plain flour.
Lay the puff pastry.

Next, place the salmon on top of it.
Then spread the basil sauce on top of the salmon.
Top it off with spinach again.
Lightly brush the puff pastry with egg mixture.
Season with salt and ground black pepper to taste.
Wrap the salmon with the pastry.
