A really simple salmon pastry recipe using gluten free pastry with 2 delicious dairy free sauces to use inside. A Spinach Pesto or a “Cheesy” Dill sauce!

I haven’t eaten pastry in roughly 7 years since being gluten free and fancied giving it a go and it came out amazingly well. I am far from a pastry chef hence why I don’t make my own pastry but maybe that is something to learn for the future!

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Portions: 2

Prep: 10 mins

Cooking: 20-25 mins



  • 2 salmon fillets, skinned
  • Gluten free pastry, rolled (I buy jusrol)

Spinach Pesto:

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 50g pine nuts
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Handful fresh basil
  • Handful fresh spinach
  • Pinch of salt & pepper

“Cheesy” Dill Sauce:

  • 60g cashews, soaked (30 mins hot water)
  • 2 tbsp yeast flakes
  • 1 tsp dried or fresh dill
  • 60ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp water


  1. Preheat your oven to 200C
  2. Start by taking off the skin for the salmon (or ask the fish mongers to do this for you)
  3. Roll out the gluten free pastry or prepare as per packet instructions
  4. Prepare the sauce you are using by adding all the ingredients into a blender and whiz until smooth
  5. Place the salmon fillet onto the pastry and top with the sauce
  6. Carefully wrap the salmon (making sure to close it properly otherwise it splits)
  7. Finally lightly coat the pastry with olive oil and place onto a baking tray in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 200C

TIP: Try this Salmon Pastry sided with my “Smokey Sweet Potato Wedges” and “Healthy Basil Mushy Peas
