Oven Baked Salmon Coulibiac Recipe
- 2 packages fresh spinach
- 2 large eggs
- pinch of ground nutmeg
- 2 pounds (960 g) Puff pastry, thawed but cold
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 whole salmon, all skin and bones removed
- Hollandaise sauce
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
Wash the spinach and remove the large stems. Place it in a large pot with just the water that clings to the leaves. Cook covered over medium heat until the spinach is wilted. Drain, refresh under cold water and leave to cool.
When cool, squeeze out as much water with your hands as you can, chop the spinach coarsely, and transfer it to the work bowl of the food processor. Add the eggs, nutmeg, salt, and pepper; then process until quite finely chopped. Set aside. Divide the puff pastry in two, on a lightly floured work surface, roll out each piece to a rectangle approximately 10"wide and 4" longer than the side of salmon. The pastry should be 1/8" to 3/16" thick.
Lay one piece on a large baking sheet, covered with parchment or foil; set the other aside. Lay the salmon on the pastry skin-side down, and centered so as to leave an even border all around. With a spatula spread the spinach mixture evenly over the top of the salmon and smooth it out. Dampen the exposed edges of pastry around the salmon with water. Drape the second sheet of puff pastry over the salmon, shaping the top pastry sheet around the fish and pressing it firmly against the bottom pastry sheet to seal it. With a sharp knife, trim the excess pastry from around the salmon, making the whole package into the shape of a fish. Cut two small holes for steam to escape in the top; With the point of a knife, you can score gills, scales, and fins on the top of the pastry. Then brush with the beaten egg refrigerate until ready to bake.
