Salmon and Mushroom Wellington with Cucumber Sauce

Yield 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chopped shallots
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/4 pound fresh mushrooms, coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons dry vermouth
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 6 (4- to 5-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen puff pastry shells, thawed
  • Cucumber Sauce
  • Garnish: fresh chives

How to Make It

  1. Saute shallots in butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat 2 minutes; add mushrooms and garlic. Cook 5 minutes or until liquid evaporates. Add vermouth; cook until liquid evaporates. Remove from heat; stir in thyme, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  2. Sprinkle fillets with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook fillets in a nonstick skillet over high heat 2 minutes on each side.

  3. Roll each pastry shell into a 7-inch circle. Spread about 1/4 cup mushroom mixture in center of each circle. Top with fillets. Wrap pastry over each fillet, tucking edges under fillet and pinching to seal. Place, seam side down, on a rack in a broiler pan.

  4. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until golden. Serve with Cucumber Sauce. Garnish, if desired.
