Salmon and mozzarella puff pastry plat

I saw this recipe on Facebook and decided to give it a go this evening. It’s easy and tasty, so why not give it a go!

Serves 1

1 salmon fillet
A couple of thick slices of mozzarella
1 sheet of pre-rolled puff pastry
A sprinkling of cress
Freshly ground black pepper
Melted butter for brushing

Pre-heat the oven to 200

Lay the sheet of pastry out on a lightly floured surface. Place the salmon fillet in the centre of the sheet.

Sprinkle the cress over the salmon and season with black pepper. Lay the two slices of mozzarella on top of the salmon.

Cut two short tabs in the pastry at the top and bottom of the salmon fillet. Then cut five strips, each about a centimetre wide, on each side of the salmon fillet.

Tuck the top and bottom pastry tabs over the ends of the salmon. Then plat the strips over the salmon and mozzarella, with alternating strips covering each other, on a slight diagonal, until the whole fillet is covered.

Pinch the pastry slightly to seal any gaps and then brush all over with melted butter.

Place on a baking tray and then bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until the pastry is golden and slightly risen and the salmon is cooked through.
