Food Friday

Ah, back to Food Friday. This recipe is from a show on Lifetime, called Mom's Cooking. The recipe I used was from the episode with JoAnn and Lisa. The recipe is called Salmon Wellington.

And here we go:

First we start out with the puff pastries.

I chose to only make one, as these things looked huge on the episode and knew there was no way me and the boy were each eating one. Unfold.

I used Tilapia, instead of Salmon because the boy is not really a fish eater, and Tilapia has less of that fishy flavor. I used a few small pieces since we didn't have any large thicker pieces. You need to lay the diagonal so it will fold correctly in the end.

Next we sprinkle some garlic powder and onion powder. This is a forgotten step in the recipe page, but it is in the episode.

She says that basically you want to cover it, I put a light sprinkle coating of each. I think honestly, I could have used some more. I also added pepper because I am a big pepper fan.

I wanted more even coverage with the cheese. So I cut my piece in half width-wise and length-wise and laid them out as such. I also used Monterrey Jack, instead of Mozzarella.

My chunk of semi-frozen cream of spinach is about twice the size of theirs, because I felt like more spinach.

Next you fold up the sides snug. Then the ends and pinch everything together so nothing leaks out.

Brush with egg whites. They say to cook on parchment paper, but I just sprayed some Pam and cooked it for 35 minutes with the oven preheated to 375.

This is what it looked like when it was done!

Massively super yummy! The boy is taking it to work tonight and will tell me what he thinks.

Would I change anything? Yes, I think there is a little too much cheese in the recipe. Next time I will just shred some cheese and sprinkle it on top. I will also try to put a little more seasonings on them.

This will definitely get made again as it was incredibly delicious!


  1. That looks really good, I am going to try it maybe with something else besides the spinach though, dad will never go for that, we are trying to eat more fish so that is a good idea, thanks

  2. I am intrigued and must try this recipe (or some variation). I'm having visions of meatballs...

  3. Mmm...looks good! And easy. Definitely going to try some variation of this sometime.
