Oh my goodness you guys. I am SO excited about this recipe. So I had some leftover puff pastry and let me tell you my friends- I LOVE puff pastry. You really just can’t go wrong. I knew whatever I topped, layered, or stuffed with this puff pastry it was gonna be delicious. And boy oh boy was that an understatement!! Inside this flaky, crispy, golden puff pastry is one of my favorite foods, salmon. I love salmon! Not only does it have amazing health benefits, but it is so delicious with a fresh lemon squeezed on top. It’s also such an easy and refreshing dinner that I frequently make at home. Sometimes I make a side of orzo pasta or crispy golden potatoes.
However, last night I decided to get real creative with the salmon. Me the artist and the salmon my blank canvas. I decided to mix things up. Go a little crazy in the kitchen. Since I started my blog, I have been feeling extra confident in the kitchen. Like I am on top of the world! My moments in the kitchen have been extra special and rewarding. I love knowing that my recipes are being seen and cherished by many. I wish I could make my recipes for all my friends and family and you every day, but since that isn’t possible, having a blog and sharing my creations is the next best thing!
Okay so back to this salmon. Hidden beneath that crispy layer of puff pastry is fresh salmon topped with sage, rosemary, and thyme. I also squeezed fresh lemon juice on top to add a little zest and keep the salmon moist. To top it all off I added a handful of parmesan cheese. Cooking this up made the whole house smell irresistible!
