Wrapped Salmon With Dijon Mustard & Mascarpone Sauce

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious salmon recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my wrapped salmon with dijon mustard & mascarpone sauce for you to enjoy.

For many people, salmon is the king of fish – it has a firm, meaty texture and a beautiful pink colour. It’s really versatile, too – it can be baked, poached, steamed, fried or flaked into stir-fries, pasta or risotto. It’s known as a brain food because of its high Omega 3 content, as well as being rich in vitamin D and minerals. This is a delicious way to get all the family eating fish – creamy, comforting and delicious.

Step By Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas mark 6.
  2. Using a potato peeler, slice 8 wide ribbons from the courgette lengthways and set aside.
  3. Lightly season each salmon fillet with salt and wrap 2 courgette ribbons around each fillet. Transfer the wrapped salmon to a baking tray measuring about 25 x 35cm and evenly dot the butter over. Transfer to the oven and bake for 18 minutes.
  4. Dice the remaining courgette and put into a small saucepan. Add the vegetable stock, Dijon mustard, mascarpone cheese, dill and garlic salt and stir all together. Place the saucepan over a low heat and gently cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Make sure that the sauce doesn’t boil otherwise it will split.
  5. Remove the salmon from the oven and arrange on a serving platter. Pour the mascarpone sauce over and around salmon.
  6. Season with black pepper and serve immediately with mashed potatoes.

GINO’S TIP: Bake the salmon parcels seam side down to help prevent the parcels unravelling.

Brasato di coniglio con liquore al mirto e vino rossoRabbit Braised in Mirto Liqueur and Red Wine

Rabbit has a lovely mild, gamey flavour and firm, meaty texture; if you haven’t tried it, I urge you to do so. Ask your butcher to prepare it for you. If you really don’t fancy rabbit, chicken pieces make a good substitute. Mirto liqueur is often available in Italian delicatessens or online, but if you can’t find it use port or sloe gin instead.

Gnocchi al Forno con Cannellini, Spinaci e PomodoriBaked Gnocchi with Cannellini Beans, Spinach and Tomatoes

I love making fresh gnocchi with my kids, but sometimes I simply don’t have the time so I buy them instead. When buying gnocchi, look for a good-quality brand that contains at least 70 per cent potato. Baking shop-bought gnocchi can really jazz them up. Here I’ve combined them with spinach, cherry tomatoes, cannellini beans and cheese for a hearty dish. Serve with a crisp salad on the side.

Linguine al granchio e proseccoCrab & Prosecco Linguine

Venice’s Rialto Fish Market is a vibrant, bustling place full of amazing fresh produce. I loved the atmosphere – all the locals out shopping and the fishmongers loudly calling out their catch of the day. These guys start work so early that they can often be seen enjoying their lunch with a glass of prosecco by 9am! So you can see where I found the inspiration for this recipe. Fresh crab is paired...

Linguine Vongole e Vino BiancoLinguine with Clams and White Wine

I absolutely love this recipe, so much so I would say it’s my favourite in this chapter. I lived on freshly landed seafood when I was a young boy and miss it hugely.  This was, and still is, number one for me. It’s so easy and yet you really feel that you have been spoiled when someone makes it for you. Please be careful when making the sauce and ensure that you do not stir the clams too vigorously...

Musse di cioccolato fondente e frutti di boscoDark Chocolate Mousse With Summer Fruits

Some of the best chocolate in Italy comes from the northern city of Turin, the capital of Piedmont, where chocolate-making has been established since the late 18th century. At this time, Italy exported its chocolate to France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland; indeed, it was the famous Turin based firm Cafarel that inspired the Swiss to start making chocolate on a commercial scale. Rich chocolate desserts...

Risotto con zucchini e zafferanoCourgette & Saffron Risotto

Saffron, sometimes referred to as 'red gold' because of its deep ruby-red colour, flourishes in the fertile hills of Sardinia's Medio Campinado province in southwestern Sardinia. The locals use it liberally in their cooking, but given its high price in Britain I tend to use it sparingly and in dishes where it will be one of the star attractions such as this delicately-flavoured risotto. The courgette...
