Filo Wrapped Salmon with Caper Butter
Filo Wrapped Salmon with Caper Butter
  • Serves: 6

A pastry wrapped salmon dish with a strong, fragrant caper butter. A great dinner party main that's quick to make.


  • 1 x 500g (18oz) pack frozen filo pastry, thawed
  • 6 fillets of salmon, skin removed
  • 100g (4oz) slightly salted butter
  • 3tbsp capers (rinsed if in brine)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Have ready a lined baking sheet. Melt butter with capers in pan to allow flavour to infuse. Open out filo sheets and cut stack in half across length ( to give 2 equal rectangles not strips!)
  2. Lightly brush one sheet with butter, place on work surface and lay one salmon fillet in middle. Gently bring up the pastry to cover sides of fish and overlap top edges but leave fish visible.
  3. Brush a second sheet of pastry. Carefully lift the fish in filo on to centre and repeat with side pastry. Pleat or fold pastry to give attractive wavy look.
  4. Brush pastry and fish again with butter and repeat with remaining fish and pastry.
  5. Place on baking sheet and bake for approx. 15 mins until the fish is cooked and pastry golden brown. Serve with remaining, reheated caper butter allowing capers to topple onto fish.
