It's no secret that most of my go-to recipes involve salmon. Such a delicate ingredient that goes well with a variety of cuisines - from salmon tandoori and teriyaki noodles to featuring in pasta and risottos. It's always a winner with me! So, when Norwegian Salmon Council got in touch I couldn't wait to get creative with one of my favourite fish. Their Norwegian Salmon is available at Tesco and other leading supermarkets, and is definitely a popular choice amongst seafood fans. Established in 1876, the generations of Norwegian Salmon fishermen have always had the philosophy of being in harmony with nature. From the Arctic waters, to your table.
For this recipe, I've put together a step-by-step video too. So you can see exactly how I made the pesto salmon en croute from the addition of pesto right through to the plaited effect top. Scroll down for the video... Happy viewing!
