This is a classic French dish with salmon tucked inside puff pastry and baked.
En croute is French for ‘in crust’.
This version includes asparagus that sits right on top of the salmon and gets wrapped up inside the pastry so when you slice it you can see all the layers including the asparagus peeking out at you, making for a beautiful presentation.
It looks like a fancy dish that is hard to make and time-consuming but both are the furthest thing from the truth. It isn’t complicated to put together, I promise!
You can even assemble it ahead of time and refrigerate until you’re ready to bake….
