It’s fish day in our house. As I’ve mentioned before in this blog, my wife cooks fish on Wednesdays. I made this a couple of weeks ago while on holiday in France.
We like salmon and we are always trying to find something different to do with it, other than pan frying it or poaching it in the oven. Last week my wife, Mistral, made a fantastic salmon, cream fraiche & tagliatelli dish. Simple and delicious.
I spread a spoonful of pesto on the fish before wrapping it in the puff pastry. It came out beautifully moist and flavoured by the basil.
The pastry was very flakey so once Zephy had had enough of wrestling it onto his fork, he found a way of scooping out the fish.
When needs must.
