Salmon en Croute simply means, salmon in a pastry crust. Made with a homemade pastry crust and stuffed with a creamy mascarpone, watercress, arugula, and salmon filling, this Salmon en Croute makes a savory addition to any brunch, lunch, or dinner. Baked for 30 minutes the crust has just the right amount of crunch that pairs perfectly with the creamy salmon filling. You can add a bit of fresh lemon juice to the salmon before combining it with the other filling ingredients for added flavor.

The crust of this pastry is crunchy and good. I brushed melted butter on top five minutes before it finished baking. I also squeezed lemon juice on the salmon. The acid in lemon juice neutralizes the strong fishy taste left behind by bacteria formed in the flesh of the fish. The fish paired well with the cheese and leafy greens.
