Salmon Wrapped in Pastry With Rice

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Hal Taylor

An Irish recipe that is just too good not to share. It comes from an old book, "The Best of Ireland". This is made with chunks of salmon with eggs, mushrooms and rice in a flaky pastry and it so tasty! Serve with hollandaise sauce and some steamed vegetables. It looks a lot harder than it is.

Absolutely wonderful blend of flavours. This is a keeper. Looks a lot more complicated than it is.
This is fantastic cold and sliced the next day.
Thanks for posting this recipe.
