Salmon in a Blanket 

Seriously who in the world wraps salmon in Pastry? I’ve been seeing everyone do it on the internet and as I’ve said before, sometimes I tend to bandwagon hop. So here’s my stab at taking something totally healthy and wrapping it with the most unhealthy thing I could find. 

What you need:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 5 oz fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup Mexican crema
  • 2 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 pound slab of salmon (skin peeled)
  • 3 tbsp honey 
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 sheets puff pastry

What you do:

  • Preheat the oven to 425
  • Heat olive oil in a medium pan
  • Lightly sauté your spinach. Don’t overdo it and cook it down too much
  • Remove your spinach from the pan and place in a bowl
  • Add your Mexican crema and 1/2 tsp of salt and mix (resist the temptation to spoon the creamy spinach into your mouth)
  • Season your salmon with your remaining seasonings
  • Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray
  • Lay out one sheet of your puff pastry
  • Spoon your spinach mixture onto the puff pastry
  • Lay the salmon on top of the spinach
  • Mix together your honey and soy sauce
  • Pour your sauce over top of the salmon
  • Place your butter on top of the salmon
  • Cover the salmon with the second sheet of puff pastry and wrap it around the bottom
  • Bake for about 18 minutes or until the pastry is flaky and the salmon is cooked through
  • Remove from the oven and cool just for a bit
  • Cut into this flaky goodness and do your best not to devour the entire thing in one sitting. 

Love you much!
