About This Recipe

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.

Feast your eyes on the finest wrapped salmon with dijon mustard & mascarpone sauce! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

  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 mashed potatoes.

GINO’S TIP: Bake the salmon parcels seam side down to help prevent the parcels unravelling.

Brasato di coniglio con liquore al mirto e vino rossoRabbit Braised in Mirto Liqueur and Red Wine

Rabbit has a lovely mild, gamey flavour and firm, meaty texture; if you haven’t tried it, I urge you to do so. Ask your butcher to prepare it for you. If you really don’t fancy rabbit, chicken pieces make a good substitute. Mirto liqueur is often available in Italian delicatessens or online, but if you can’t find it use port or sloe gin instead.

Spigola con puré di cannellini e salsa al basilicoPan-Fried Sea Bass With Cannellini Mash & Basil Sauce

It has often been said that beans are the meat of the poor man, as they are a healthy alternative to meat, but in Italy, beans are used in pasta dishes, salads, mashed and spread on bruschetta - to name but a few options. They are used all day every day and are so incredibly good for you - packed with protein and soluble fibre, they make a really wonderful alternative to potatoes. The creamy bean mash...

Bucatini with eggs, pancetta and Pecorino RomanoBucatini alla Carbonara

This has to be one of my favourite recipes ever, especially with this shape of pasta. Bucatini is like a thick spaghetti with a hole in the middle that runs from one end to the other. This allows the sauce to really coat the pasta inside and out beautifully. If you are a fan of a simple spaghetti dish, I recommend you try this traditional Roman recipe. You can substitute the pancetta with streaky bacon...

Linguine Alla AmatricianaLinguine With Cherry Tomatoes, Pancetta And White Wine

With no doubt, I have to dedicate this recipe to my friend and manager Jeremy Hicks. We have known each other for seven years now and without fail he has to have this pasta dish at least once a week. I actually agree with him, it's one of my favourites too, because I just love the combination of the onion, pancetta and chilli. If you prefer, you can substitute linguine with spaghetti or tagliatelle.

Pizza FiorentinaPizza with Mozzarella, Spinach, Egg & Parmesan

The Fiorentina is a firm favourite in the D’Acampo house, and always creates arguments over who gets the last piece. (My eldest son Luciano normally wins.) It’s the healthiest pizza you can find, and this true classic from Florence is a great way of getting the whole family eating their greens.

Zuccotto panettone e MarsalaPanettone, Chocolate and Marsala

This is such an impressive-looking dessert and makes a great end to any kind of meal. You can be as creative as you like in flavouring the cream. In previous experiments I have mixed it with fruit, chocolate bits and pieces of marshmallow, but frankly I prefer this simpler version.
