Thai Salmon Filo Parcels - sponsored by Singha Beer

Singha Beer

For waist-watchers and the health conscious, the growing popularity of filo pastry is, I'm sure, warmly welcomed. But I also suspect we could be in danger of overkill, so I like to use it only where it's really appropriate – like here, where a parcel of something really does seal in all those precious salmon juices, and when they mingle with the lime, ginger and coriander, the result is marvellous!

To complement the flavours of this recipe, try it with a cold glass of Singha beer.

 
 

This recipe is taken from The Delia Collection: Fish.

Method

First of all, in a small bowl, mix together the ginger, lime zest, garlic, coriander and spring onion, then stir in the lime juice.

Now melt the butter in a small saucepan, then lay 1 sheet of filo pastry out on a flat surface, brush it all over with some of the melted butter, spread another sheet of filo on top and brush this lightly with melted butter as well.

Now position one of the salmon fillets near to one end of the filo, season it and sprinkle half the lime and herb mixture on top.

Next, fold the short end of pastry over the salmon, then fold the long sides inwards, roll the salmon over twice more and trim any surplus pastry (it's important not to end up with great wedges of pastry at each end).

Wrap the other piece of salmon in exactly the same way and, when you're ready to cook, brush the parcels all over with melted butter, place them on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is brown and crisp.

Serve, garnished with sprigs of coriander and wedges of lime to squeeze over.
