Saumon aux Duxelles.

Or, in other words, salmon fillets baked with a mushroom paste. Which ever way you say it, it is a delicate delight and so easy to produce that a seven-year-old could do it. So grab your seven-year-old, pop it in the kitchen with some salmon and a couple of pieces of foil and let it get on with things. You may want to prepare the duxelle yourself.


2 salmon fillets, even sized, about 200-250g each.

A little oil.

A little salt.

1 cup duxelle*.


Preheat the oven to 220°C. Lay the fillets on two sheets of baking foil smeared with a little oil, sprinkle with a little salt to taste and smear the Duxelles paste evenly over the two fillets. Wrap into parcels, place on a baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve with new potatoes and a green salad with lemon vinaigrette** on the side.

 Serves: 2.
