Secondi Piatti: Meat, Fish, Eggs, Cheese Starters

Hard-Boiled Eggs with Salmon in Puff Pastry Crust

A different way to eat eggs with salmon. They perfectly work both as a starter and as main course paired by a salad or with a dip. Just a light brushing with few drops of Extra Virgin Olive Oil for a nice crunchiness at the end.


Serves 4, Preparation 15 mins, Cooking 40 mins

  • 1 roll of rectangular puff pastry
  • 4 medium hard-boiled eggs
  • 150 g Sliced smoked salmon
  • EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a drop
  • a dash of mustard
  • a pinch of salt
  • a handful of black sesame seeds

Method

Heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4.

After cooking the eggs for 8 minutes in boiling water, place them under running water to cool and to peel.

Unroll the puff pastry, cut it into four equal wide rectangular strips so to spread a little mustard, to accomodate few slices of smoked salmon and a hard-boiled egg to wrap in the puff pastry creating a sort of bun, and closing it tightly. Proceed in the same fashion for the others.
Place them onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper and prick them gently with a fork so that they do not swell too much during cooking.

Brush them with a drop of oil, sprinkle evenly a handful of black sesame seeds and a pinch of salt on top, place in the pre-heated oven about 20 to 25 minutes or as soon as they are golden brown.

Leave to cool before slicing.
