Rolling Pin
Large Bowl
Small Bowl
Baking Tray


  • 2 pounds 1 Side of Salmon (skinned)
  • 1.7 ounce Shortcrust Pastry
  • 1 Lemon (zest)
  • Basil Leaves
  • Dill Leaves
  • Plain Flour (to dust)
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 2.1 ounces Unsalted Butter
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Wholegrain Mustard
  • Sea Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)


  • Roll the pastry as thin as a coin and set it aside. Now add butter, dill leaves, and roughly chopped basil into a large bowl. Zest a lemon over them, add salt and pepper and mix them well until combined into herb butter.
  • Pat the salmon dry and rub salt and pepper all over it. Spread herb butter on one side of the salmon fillet. Spread the mustard evenly over one side of another fillet. Place that fillet on with the mustard-seasoned side down over the first salmon.
  • Put this salmon in the center of the pastry and brush egg on the surrounding pastry. Now, trim the excess pastry and fold it into a neat salmon parcel. Carefully turn it over to have the seam underneath.
  • Place it on a baking tray. Brush a beaten egg all over it and score it lightly in a cross-hatched pattern. Season it with salt and pepper. Cover it and keep it in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
  • Bake this salmon parcel for about 25 minutes in a preheated oven (400 F) until the pastry is golden brown and crispy. Let it rest for 5 minutes and then cut the slices and serve with hollandaise sauce, potatoes, or minted peas.
