Total time: 40 minutes

Ingredients for 6 people

3 leeks, green ends removed

1/2 cup of sour cream

2 puff pastries

1/2 cup of mozzarella, grated

10 oz of fillet of salmon

2 egg yolks

olive oil

salt & pepper


Baking tray

Parchment paper

Step 1/4

Mince the leeks and cook them in a drizzle of olive oil. When they are starting to caramelize, add the sour cream, salt, and pepper, and spread them in the center of 1 of the puff pastries placed on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Add the grated mozzarella and salmon and cover with the 2nd pastry.

Step 2/4

Seal the dough on the edges of the salmon so that it takes the shape of the fillet. Trim the dough around the salmon to form a fish: a triangular point facing one end of the salmon fillet for the head, the fins at the top and bottom, and the tail fin at the other end.

Step 3/4

Fold over the top dough from the head part. Cut 2 triangles the size of the head from the dough scraps and place them on top. Cut 1 smaller triangle from the scraps and place it on top of the others. Put the folded part back on top of the whole. Place a strip of dough rolled into a spiral to make an eye.

Step 4/4

With the tip of a knife, draw the division between the head and body of the fish and make lines on the fins. Draw scales on the body of the fish with a spoon. Brush with egg yolk and bake for 25 minutes at 350 °F. Serve hot.
