Earlier in the week I made a really tasty carrot and apple soup, and a pork and apple casserole for supper. When I found some puff pastry in the fridge that needed using up I decided it wouldn’t be fair to Paul to make an apple pie. So I decided to make salmon en croute.
The recipe sounded really easy. Just put the salmon, red peppers and herbs in the centre of the rolled out pastry and plait the cut pieces. What could go wrong?
I didn’t roll the pastry out thin enough, couldn’t figure out how to plait it and the whole thing looked like a pregnant armadillo. The salmon was cooked okay inside but the pastry was a bit undercooked. I should have stuck with apple pie.
