Potato-Wrapped Stuffed Salmon
Orval Kent Foods
2 large russet potatoes,
Salt and pepper
1 package Kirkland
( 4 portions)
3 tablespoons olive oil
Arugula tossed with lemon
vinaigrette, for serving
Using a mandoline slicer, cut potatoes lengthwise
into paper-thin slices. Place 4 slices lengthwise on a
piece of parchment paper in a row, overlapping the
long sides slightly. Make another row parallel to the
first one, overlapping the short ends of the slices in
the first row and forming approximately a 6-by-7-
inch rectangle. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Cut one of the salmon portions in half lengthwise,
making sure the stuffing is evenly distributed. Place
one of the halves on the center of the potatoes. Fold
the potatoes up over the fish, forming a packet and
pressing to make the potato slices adhere. Season
again with salt and pepper. Repeat for as many
portions as needed.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Gently
lift the salmon packets from the parchment paper,
place them seam-side down in the pan and cook
until the potatoes are tender and golden brown,
about 3 minutes. Carefully flip over and cook for an
additional 2-3 minutes. Remove from the pan and
cut in half diagonally before serving.
Serve on a bed of dressed arugula. Makes 4-6 servings.
