Serves 4
150ml olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
1 garlic clove
150g raw prawns, peeled and deveined
2 tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 yellow pepper seeded and cut into large slices
4 salmon fillets
1 fresh flat leaf parsley sprig, chopped
fish stock 3 tbsp
salt and pepper
linguine for 4

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Cut 4 large squares of baking paper.

Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Cook the linguine until it is al dente. Meanwhile heat 2 tbsp of olive oil and cook the prawns for a few minutes. Add the tomatoes, yellow pepper, basil, chilli and fish stock and simmer for 5 minutes.

Divide the linguine between the baking paper. Place one salmon fillet on each portion of linguine. Spoon the prawn vegetable mixture on top of each portion. Bring up the edges of the baking paper and seal the edges. Transfer the parcels to a baking tray and bake for about 12-15 minutes.

Place the parcels on a serving dish and serve.


To be honest, I didn’t use any basil. It’s more like I tasted the dish having used dried dill and I concluded that basil is a much better herb for it. This recipe is adapted from a Swordfish Parcel in the Silver Spoon cookbook. it’s been heavily modified and that’s why I have not posted the recipe in its original form.
