Smoked fresh salmon in parcel with grated courgettes and carrots

Salmon Saumon 22


Smoked products are quite trendy at the moment, but I was surprised to be able to find some fresh smoked salmon at the fishmonger. The smoky flavour is pretty soft and quite pleasant, perfect fit for a salmon filet served along with some fresh grated vegetables. I add the idea of this recipe of steamed smoked fresh salmon cooked in a parcel for a dinner with friends.

It was already summer and the weather was already quite warm, I wanted to serve some fine food without using too much heat (ie: oven) in order to avoid a suffocating feeling from my guest due to a too high temperature. The steam cooking was a good idea and the fact to use grated courgettes added a summery touch to the dish.

The dish was really appreciated by the guests, it required a little bit of preparation for grated both courgettes and carrots but it is not too long.

How to make smoked fresh salmon in parcel with grated courgettes and carrots?

  • Cut some baking parchment paper in order prepare the parcel
  • Peel the courgette and grated it
  • Peel the carrots and grated them
  • On the baking parchment parcel, put a generous layer of both carrots and courgettes

!  You can mix the two grated vegetables for playing with the colour and the texture of both courgette and carrots. The carrots will tend to stay crispier than the courgette.

  • Add on top the salmon filet
  • Add on each salmon filet, half lemon juice

! You can keep some slices of lemon in order to put them on top of the filet in order to decorate it

  • Add dill
  • Add a little bit of soya cream (a couple of tablespoons)
  • Then close the parcel carefully

!  Usually I use some staple for making sure that the parcel is perfectly sealed and making sure that no liquid will leak from the parcel

  • Steam the parcel for 30 minutes in steamer
  • Serve the smoked fresh salmon with grated courgette and carrots straight away. It can also be accompanied by some white or brown rice.
