Puff Pastry with Salmon and Mushrooms

As I was just learning how to properly and simply cook the Nordic fish in the oven, I decided to step up a bit further and try something bravely: what would happen if I put some salmon inside some pastry together with… mushrooms maybe? And which type of dough? which which hmm.. puff dough for sure.. Ok, I could do that.. And I could even find a friend that would be willing to taste it with me. So, I got into the business and I became intimate with salmon this time, with a very much hands-in experience!

Oven-baked Salmon

Ever since I came to Finland, I’ve had all sorts of smoked fish – especially salmon of course. I usually bought them ready from Stockmannin Herkku or from Kauppahalli in Hakaniemi. But I had never ever actually cooked salmon myself. So, on Friday, I lost my virginity on that and cooked salmon for the first time in my life. I could not believe how easy it was! And oh my, baking the salmon in the oven does result in an extremely light and delicious way – I can go back to eating salmon now!
