Salmon en croute

I wanted to make a salmon en croute for some while now. And considering that I do love both salmon and pastry, it seemed like a naturally choice for me.

I used:
2 salmon filet's
chopped fresh dill
1 sheet of puff pastry
lemon juice
1 egg
salt and pepper

I marinated the salmon ina mix of lemon juice, salt and pepper, chopped dill. From my pictures you can see that I added a orange spice. It's not curry, even though it looks like that. It's a Swedish spice called Citrus, that has, among other ingredients, lemon zest, onion, garlic, different herbs, and that is perfect for fish and chicken dishes. The marinated salmon I put it in the fridge for 20 minutes.

I cut the pastry in two and layed in the middle one salmon filet.

Fold the sides together and make slits in the top with a knife, to allow steam to escape. I brushed all over with the egg-wash.

I baked it in the oven, 200 Celsius degrees for about 20-25 minutes.

We served it with sauteed veggies and sauce made from yogurt, mayo and fresh chopped dill!

We licked our fingers, that's how tasty it was :)
