Salmon Wellington

If you love salmon than you will love this tasty and quite easy Salmon Wellington aka salmon fillet wrapped with puff pastry.

I think this is the fanciest dish that I made in a long time, but it is ridiculously simple. Well, I could not believe why was I scared to make it before.

Anyhow, I had so much fish in my freezer and decided to give it a go. The first time when I made it for my family and me, it was so good. The second time even better.

Now, I must make it every few weeks. It is just such a delicious and satisfying way to prep fish. In addition, my family simply loves it.

My husband actually asks for it all the time so when I want to make a romantic dinner for just two of us, this meal is certainly it.

Salmon Wellington

I imagine that you could use another type of fish. I did not try it, but I do not see the reason why not.

Also, I don’t think chicken or pork would work unless you pre-cook it.

I think the pastry would be too soggy but then again I have not tried it, however, I suspect precooking would help tremendously.

Anyhow, I am not Godan Ramsey, of course, but I believe my Salmon Wellington is kick-ass good. It is flavorful, easy and delicious.

You may serve it with maybe my comforting potato salad, or refreshing Cucumber Radish Salad.

Salmon Wellington

Either way, I really do hope you guys make it and like it as much as we did.

That being said, I will update pictures soon because I didn’t like these as much… but, you guys kept asking for the recipe ever since I posted on Instagram. So, here it is.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 5 oz fresh spinach, or defrosted frozen spinach
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt, for spinach
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, for spinach
  • 2 oz heavy whipped cream
  • 1/4 block cream cheese
  • Handful shredded parmesan cheese, about 1/4-1/2 cup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, softened to room temperature
  • 1 salmon fillet, defrosted if frozen and skin removed
  • 1 teaspoon salt, for salmon
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, for salmon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 egg, beaten for pastry

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add the garlic and cook for a few seconds at medium-high heat then add the spinach, onion powder, salt, and pepper, cooking until spinach is creamy and looks done.
  3. Pour in heavy whipped cream, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, and dill, stirring until the mixture is evenly combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Defrost salmon fillet if frozen and remove the skin if your fillet got skin. Season salmon with salt and pepper on both sides and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Also, if there are any bones, please remove pin bones from a Salmon fillet. Lay the fillet flat on a work surface and run your fingers down its length. When you locate a bone, take the end of the bone with fish tweezers and steadily on the bone, wiggling it gently until it pulls free. Repeat until bine free.
  5. On a cutting board, smooth out the sheet of puff pastry. You may use a rolling pin to stretch it a bit.
    Add a few tablespoons of spinach mixture in the middle of the pastry, lengthwise where the salmon ging to lay.
  6. Place the salmon in the middle of the pastry and on top of the creamy spinach bed.
  7. Place several spoonfuls of the spinach mixture on top of the salmon, smoothing it out so that it does not spill over the sides.
  8. Fold the edges of the puff pastry over the salmon and spinach, starting with the long sides and then the shorter ends. You may trim any excess pastry from the ends, then fold the ends on top or just tuck in the side under the pastry log.
  9. Flip the puff pastry-wrapped salmon over and transfer for a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or use non-stick baking tin.
  10. Brush the beaten egg on the top and sides of the pastry. Score the top of the pastry with a knife, cutting shallow diagonal lines to create a crosshatch pattern.
  11. Bake about 25 minutes, or until pastry is nicely golden brown.

Notes

You may use other fish if you prefer but the time would depend on the thickness and type of fish. Expermiting is always great!

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner is the best. Not only that you can mix and match vegetables, but it is all year round kind of meal. Don’t you agree?

One of our favorite fish is salmon. We just love salmon made any way possible; smoked, grilled, poached, baked. It is amazing in baked dishes or sandwiches.

What is your favorite fish?

On the other hand, sheet pan dinner is just phenomenal. You can add chicken, sausage, beef, pork or any other fish. Also, it is fantastic to clean your fridge day when you do not have so much food, but it has to be used.

Salmon and Vegetables Sheet Pan Dinner

I have made this dish many times and the best way to not overcook fish was to actually wrap it in foil. If you hate relationship with Alum foil then just use parchment paper.

I cooked it at the same temperature and pulled salmon 10 minutes earlier so it ended up cooking in the foil before serving. It was absolutely divine!

Yes, you can absolutely bake fish on top of your veggies but I found this way tastier.

Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

Easy, Delicious and a perfect family dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1- 1 1/2 pound Salmon Fillet, defrosted (Wild Alaskan)
  • Kosher Salt a good pinch or two, rub on the salmon
  • 1-2 teaspoon ground black Pepper
  • Lemon slices from 1 lemon
  • 1 teasoon dried Oregano
  • 5 tablespooms of Garlic-Herb Butter (if available)

Vegetables

  • 1 pound New Potatoes, I used red
  • 1/2 pound Green Beans
  • 1/2 pound Baby Carrots
  • 1 pound Broccoli, I used frozen florets¬†
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
  • 4-5 Garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon dried Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried Oregano

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 375F

SALMON:

  1. Defrost salmon, and take it out of the pack. Take a large heavy-duty aluminum foil or parchment paper and then, season salmon with salt, pepper, herbs. Rub on both sides well, then place the sliced lemon on each slice of salmon and a tablespoon of butter. Wrap nicely and prep vegetables.
  2. Place Salmon to bake at the same time you will bake vegetables.
  3. Make sure to take it out after 25 minutes. That way salmon will not overcook. It will continue cooking in the foil until it is ready to be served. So do not open it until you are ready to eat or until vegetables are ready.

SHEET PAN VEGETABLES:

  1. Wash Potatoes and either cut them in half or the quarters.
  2. Season each vegetable with salt, pepper, and herbs, then place each vegetable next to each other but do not overcrowd the sheet pan. Make sure it is somewhat in one layer.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 40 minutes in 375F preheated oven.
  4. If the potatoes need a bit more time to cook, then remove all the other vegetables and allow potatoes to cook additional 2-3 minutes under the broiler (medium temp).

Notes

You may use any vegetables that you have or are in season; Cauliflower, asparagus, peppers, cherry tomatoes, etc. Possibilities are endless

You may cook vegetables in the air fryer, but potatoes might take a bit more time to crisp up.

If you do not have garlic and herbs butter available, then just add a pinch more salt, add more dried parsley and a teaspoon or two of garlic powder, that's it!

With this recipe, I am entering Tonnino Tuna Recipe Challange. After debating for a few weeks what to make, this pizza came to my mind.

We love pizza, of course, but I am a huge fan of tuna pizza. Often I would change toppings; sometimes I would use peppers, and feta or goat cheese and from time to time I make this just like this. Let me tell you, there is nothing like homemade easy tuna pizza.

I would usually make this over the summertime and serve it with a bowl of greens. Personally, I think that is a perfect meal especially if you are using good quality ingredients.

For this recipe challenge, I used Tonnino Tuna in olive oil. I was thorn between garlic in olive oil or just in olive oil. In the end, I picked tuna in olive oil.

Tonnino Tuna Pizza

However, you may use pretty much any flavor with these types of pizza because of the ingredients that I have used just work very well with any tuna.

What can I tell you from my experience as a Tonnini Tuna consumer? Well, not only that it comes in the jar, but the taste is delightful. I can confidently say that it is my family’s favorite tuna fish. On the other hand, any tuna, canned or in the jar would work just fine with pizza.
