    Martha's salmon en papillote with red pesto, pancetta & Padrón peppers

    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes + marinating
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes to 45 minutes
    • Total time: 45-60 minutes + marinating

    Serves: 2

    Ingredients

    • 2 heaped tsp red pesto
    • 1 tsp olive oil
    • ½ tsp sweet smoked paprika
    • 8 whole Padrón peppers (or 2 bell peppers, deseeded)
    • 6 strips pancetta 

    Method

    1. To make the marinade, stir together the red pesto, olive oil and paprika in a medium-sized bowl. Add the salmon, cover and leave to marinate for at least one hour or, better still, overnight.

    2. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Cut two large rectangles of baking parchment and lay each out on the work surface. Wrap each marinated salmon fillet with three pieces of pancetta, then place on the baking parchment and arrange 4 Padrón peppers on top of each fillet. Top with a crack of black pepper before sealing and cooking.

    3. Fold the empty half of the parchment paper over the salmon and crimp the edges closed, as if making a square pasty. Repeat with the second piece of salmon, then put the parcels onto a baking tray.

    4. Bake for 30-35 minutes. The salmon should be tender and cooked through. Serve in the parcel, so none of the juices are lost, or transfer to plates and drizzle over the juices.
