Wrapped Salmon With Dijon Mustard & Mascarpone Sauce : Low Carb Keto

Gino D'Campo says "are you looking for a delicious salmon recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my wrapped salmon with Dijon mustard & mascarpone sauce for you to enjoy.

For many people, salmon is the king of fish – it has a firm, meaty texture and a beautiful pink colour. It’s really versatile, too – it can be baked, poached, steamed, fried or flaked into stir-fries, pasta or risotto. It’s known as a brain food because of its high Omega 3 content, as well as being rich in vitamin D and minerals. This is a delicious way to get all the family eating fish – creamy, comforting and delicious."

Serves Four 
1 Courgette, Trimmed
400g, Cut Into 4 Pieces Skinless Salmon Fillet
40g Salted Butter
100ml Hot Vegetable Stock
1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
50g (Reduced Fat) Mascarpone Cheese
1 Tablespoon Fresh Dill, Finely Chopped
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Salt
To Taste Salt

To Taste Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas mark 6.
2. Using a potato peeler, slice 8 wide ribbons from the courgette lengthways and set aside.
3. Lightly season each salmon fillet with salt and wrap 2 courgette ribbons around each fillet. Transfer the wrapped salmon to a baking tray measuring about 25 x 35cm and evenly dot the butter over. Transfer to the oven and bake for 18 minutes.
4. Dice the remaining courgette and put into a small saucepan. Add the vegetable stock, Dijon mustard, mascarpone cheese, dill and garlic salt and stir all together. Place the saucepan over a low heat and gently cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Make sure that the sauce doesn’t boil otherwise it will split.
5. Remove the salmon from the oven and arrange on a serving platter. Pour the mascarpone sauce over and around salmon.
6. Season with black pepper and serve immediately with vegetables of your choice.

Gino's Tip
Bake the salmon parcels seam side down to help prevent the parcels unravelling.

You've inspired me to get a piece of salmon. I usually have it every week for a few meals, but went with shrimp for a change this week. Take good care!

I love anything with Dijon - ...I'll never forget the first time I made it when I was a young mom. We all loved it, especially one of my sons.
