ISO of Fish Wellington.

Speaking of Wellington.

The posts about beef Wellington remind me of the question I had. A while ago I made salmon Wellington. Everybody loved it, except me. The recipe cold for leeks and onion to be included. I hate cooked onions, not that I am a big fan of the raw ones either. Does anybody have some different recipe or suggestions? What to replace it with. I did it without and it is just too dry.

Cut a pocket in the salmon and fill it with cream cheese & chives. Wrap it up in puff pastry & bake.

Another idea is to fill it with mushrooms Duxelle or creamed spinach & pine nuts. Just a thought.

I recall Emeril making one huge piece of salmon wrapped in puff pastry, and he carved out fish scales in the dough/pastry. Looked very impressive. You might try a search on Food Network.

That' s interesting. I like mushroom idea. But Not sure about the taste combination. For some reason in my head mushrooms go really well with meat, but not with fish. I should try this.

Thank you.

Give it a go - play around w the idea. You could add some chopped/slivered almonds to the cream cheese/chive mixture.

Or, you could serve the mushroom duxelles on the side with creamed spinach.

Mushroom Duxelles

Cream cheese isn't going to work. Can't have dairy stuff. Couldn't find Emeril's recipe on Food network. It must have been old. ThougH, I think I remember it too.

No pesto for me, can't stand the taste of it, I do like sun dried tomatoes.

What do you, people think of mushroom - fish combination? To me it sounds odd. Am I wrong? Do you think it's going to taste ok?

Also Amy, where did you find that picture?
