Lime & Coriander Salmon Filo Parcels


The below recipe is a super healthy alternative when you are looking for that something different with a piece of Salmon. What I love about it is that the Salmon is wrapped in a light filo pastry & will cook in the lime & herb marinate in such a way that everything fuses together for a delicious crispy salmon parcel of goodness. Personally I like to spice mine up with some devil eye chillis but if you do not like things spicy you can skip this step.

All is cooked in a hot oven & can be served with your choice of sides.


Ingredients

8 pieces of Filo pastry 
2 pieces of Salmon Fillets (100g each aprox)

Zest of one lime
Juice of one lime
Salt & Pepper
25g Butter

Method

- Brush one side of the filo pastry with  butter (if pastry is not long enough place 2 side by side)
- Place another filo pastry on top and brush with butter 
- Place your Salmon at the end of the pastry and season with salt & pepper
 

- Now spoon over the lime & herb mixture
