Do you do brunch? I personally think everyone needs to plan a weekend brunch from time to time. The ladies in my family get together for brunch about one weekend a month and it’s so much fun to just enjoy good food and good company for a few hours. I’ve typically stuck with finger sandwiches and other similar foods but let me tell you, this salmon wellington was a huge hit at my last brunch.
Salmon is so good for you that you just have to find a great way to prepare it that you’ll enjoy. This recipe takes less than an hour and it’s a delicious alternative to other fish type dishes. With onion, garlic, spinach, parmesan, and puff pastry, this is definitely not your regular fish recipe.
Even if you don’t brunch often, you can fix this for dinner any night of the week. This blueberry pie is a great dessert to serve after salmon, by the way. Now, even if you’re not a fan of salmon, with the flavorings that you will add to this dish, you’re sure to enjoy the deliciousness and since salmon is so good for you – it’s filled with vitamins, amino acids, and so many other nutrients – this is the perfect way to get that good food in you while really enjoying the taste.
I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of salmon on its own. I mean, it’s okay but sometimes I just feel like it needs a little boost to make it great. The ingredients in this salmon wellington really do make it a delicious dish and one that is so easy to make, you’ll want to enjoy it several times each month. See?
Now you’re getting salmon with all its wonderful health benefits and you’re doing it with a dish that even your kids are going to love. Speaking of the kids, they’ll also really love these banana and Nutella puff pastry rolls, which are also really easy to make.
Now, grab that salmon and let’s make some wellington. I promise this is a dish that you’re going to love and it’s sure to be a huge hit at your next brunch!
