This impressive dish is a classic. The salmon is enclosed in a rich brioche crust with layers of onion, mushroom, rice, and hard-cooked eggs. You may substitute prepared puff pastry for brioche. Also, you can simply melt some butter with an equal quantity of lemon juice and serve instead of velouté sauce


  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 tablespoon oil
    1 cup mushrooms, chopped
    1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
    2 cups cooked rice
    1/2 cup velouté sauce
    3 hard boiled eggs

    1 tablespoon melted butter
    1 recipe brioche dough (see recipe below)
    1 egg, beaten
    2 cups velouté sauce


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash salmon; pat dry. Remove any bones and skin and cut in equal halves. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
    Sauté onion in oil. Add the mushrooms and parsley. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Mix in the cooked rice and 1/2 cup velouté sauce.
    Roll out brioche dough into a rectangle 1/4 inch thick. Place on a baking sheet. Arrange a layer of onion rice mix , over the whole length of dough to within one inch from edges. Top with one piece of salmon.Place hard boiled eggs over salmon and top with second piece salmon so that eggs are sandwiched between salmon .
    Brush edges of dough with egg. Fold over mix. Seal all edges and roll pastry so that seam is underneath. Brush dough with egg. Decorate with pieces of dough. Let rise at room temperature for 30 minutes. Bake at 375 F for 30 minutes.
