Spring has Sprung at Maisonvogue...A lovely Spring Time Recipe for Rustic Salmon en Croute ..Super easy!!
A few days ago on a glorious warm sunny day here in Alabama, I came across some of our wild flowers down in our woods.
Of course I had to pick some to enjoy close up , so I picked the Daffodils, Grape Hyacinth's and Snow Drops ..and chose some pleasing containers to put them in .
They are on the windowsill above our kitchen sink.
And make me smile every time I see them.
I am sure if they could talk they would be saying 'look at me ! look at me !'
I left plenty down in the woods to enjoy ..there is a carpet of the Grape Hyacinths to enjoy.
Preheat oven to 400f/200c/gas6
As puff pastry is so involved to make ..I always buy some perfectly good frozen puff pastry sheets.
That you only have to defrost to room temperature for about 40 mins before rolling out .
This pastry cooks perfectly every time.
I lined a Oven baking sheet with foil, for easy clean up and then put a sheet of parchment paper on to it.
I rolled out the pastry to fit the pan.
And placed it on top of the parchment paper
Just a few mushrooms (optional).
Finally a sprinkling of spinach and arugula leaves.
A tiny drizzle of olive oil.
Then roughly gather up the sides of the pastry and pinch and push them together.
Making a nest for your fish.
Making sure that nothing can escape from your rustic walls of pastry.
See the finished photo on how I did it.
Crack an egg into a cup , beat it , then use a pastry brush to paint this egg wash all around the pastry edges.
Place the Salmon at the very bottom of the oven with an empty baking tray on the shelf above to protect the top of it from getting too much heat .
Heat for 35 minutes.
A little olive oil in a cast iron skillet ..cook small pieces of bacon.
Once cooked remove from pan and cook fresh Brussel sprouts in the juice and oil.
For about 4 minutes ..
Then cover with chicken stock and simmer for 25 mins.
Sprinkle with cooked bacon
I seemed the broccoli in the microwave
The only thing to do is to eat, savor and enjoy my Husband's company.
I hope that you can bring a little Spring in to your home.
Thanks for popping by.
