Salmon En Croute

I decided to have a go at this No Count recipe as I was looking for another way of cooking salmon, and salmon en croute is a meal I haven’t had for nearly two years while I’ve been following the NC plan.  It was always going to be tough to try to replicate the real thing but we absolutely loved this and I can’t wait to make it again.

It’s free on No Count and 5 points per serving if following WW Flex.

  

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 2 boneless salmon fillets
  • 80g baby spinach
  • ½ an onion, finely chopped
  • 25g fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 WW wraps
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (use a low-cal spray oil if following WW Flex)
  • 100g Yeo Valley 0% crème fraiche
  • an egg

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the onion. Cook for a couple of minutes.
  3. Add the spinach, parsley and lemon juice and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  4. Take the pan off the stove and squeeze any water out of the spinach.
  5. Stir in the crème fraiche and season to taste.
  6. Lay the wraps out on a baking tray and brush some of the beaten egg all round the edge.
  7. Place a salmon fillet on each wrap – over to one side – before putting some of the mixture from the pan over each salmon fillet.
  8. Fold over the wrap and press down with a fork to seal the edges together.
  9. Brush the remaining egg over each wrap.
  10. Place the baking tray in the oven for about 25 minutes.
  11. I’ve served it here with roasted vegetables: enjoy!

 

When I make this again, I’ll serve it with mashed potatoes and long-stem broccoli.

    1. Hi Pat, you could replace the creme fraiche with Alpro plain yogurt – it might be thinner in texture but it should work ok:-) Helen xxxx

  1. I absolutely love this dish, it’s delicious! So easy to make too. I love salmon, but this recipe make it’s a bit more exciting xx

  3. Hi I am new to this no count and before trying any recipes I just want to grab hold of the basic x for breakfast I usually have over night oats and for lunch I either have salad with chicken and egg or mini pita whole meal pocklets with fruit may have some sweet pea lentil crisps for two but not always . For tea I have salmon with rice and veg , chicken new potatoes and veg , prawn and chicken curry with rice I buy the jar from Aldi and point it . We have ww chips with gammon and egg etc how would all this stand on no count x

    1. Hi Eliann 🤗💕 The majority of your food would be free on No Count. The overnight oats are free and you could have those with low fat natural yogurt rather than 0% fat. I use a sugar-free syrup to sweeten them a bit which is also free (from Myprotein.com). Your lunches would be free if you used WW wraps or pitta (check out the FAQ page to see more breads which are free on NC. You would still have to point the pea snacks. The meat, potatoes and veg for tea are free but you can save points on NC by making your own curry sauces – there are recipes here to try 😁💕 I hope you enjoy NC; it can take a few days to get used to but I really hope it works for you. 💕💕 Helen

      1. Thank you love for your help and tips I am really struggling to loose and feel bloated however I think from my next weigh in day I am going to try no count see if it makes a difference . X so finger crossed

        1. Hi and thank you Eliann 💕 Good luck with No Count! If you do feel bloated, on NC, try cutting back on the carbs as it is easy to overeat these. Fingers crossed it works for you 🤞🏻🤞🏻💕💕 Helen xxxxx

  4. Yet another amazing , delicious and easy recipe. Just a few questions : how did you drain the spinach after cooking ? Can yogurt replace creme fraiche in this recipe ? What else can be done with left over spinach mixed with creme fraiche ?
    Many thanks for the great website and all your effort with helping others achieve what you achieve with your weight loss.

    1. Awww thank you Nisa, that’s so kind of you to say. 💕💕 I just used a spoon to press the spinach to the side of the pan and tipped the pan to let the water drain out. Yes, you could replace the creme fraiche with yogurt 👍🏻💕 and you could use the left over spinach and creme fraiche in a WW wrap or pitta with bacon medallions 😋😋💕 Hope that helps and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend 🤗💕💕 Helen xxxxxx

    1. Hi and thank you Vanessa! You can use a standard type wrap but if you are doing No Count, you would have to point it. Hope you have a lovely day, Helen xxxx

  6. Going to cook this salmon en croute looks really tasty. All your recipes and blogs are really inspirational and really helpful .when are you going to write a cookery book filled with your recipes . Thankyou

    1. Awww thank you Kathy 💕 Enjoy this one – my mum’s just ordered it for when she’s round next. 😋💕 I’d love to do a cookery book but I’d need WW on board as No Count is their idea. Maybe one day 🤞🏻🤞🏻💕💕 Hope you have a lovely weekend when it arrives 💕 Helen xxxx
