Salmon Wellington

When you pull this stunning Salmon Wellington from the oven, please pause a moment to admire your handiwork. It’s going to be hard to refrain from diving immediately into that golden, flaky layer of puff pastry to reveal the treasure of perfectly moist baked salmon and garlicky sautéed spinach within, but you deserve several solid seconds of serious self-congratulations.

Just look at your gorgeous creation! W-O-W.

This salmon Wellington recipes features a fillet of salmon that’s brushed with a mixture of melted butter, lemon zest, and Dijon, then placed on a bed of garlicky sautéed spinach. The salmon and spinach are then wrapped up in puff pastry like a present, then baked until the pastry is deeply golden, and the fish is moist and tender.

The only thing better than the way this puff pastry wrapped salmon looks is how it tastes.

Lightly crispy on the outside. Buttery on the inside. Indulgent but not food-coma inducing. Tangentially healthy without tasting remotely like a sacrifice. Essentially, salmon Wellington is perfect.

I love salmon for entertaining in general, because it feels fancy but is deceptively easy to make. This Baked Salmon in Foil is a staple, but when you really want to knock your guests’ socks off, make salmon Wellington. (more…)
