Salmon Lasagne Rolls; Spring

It would almost appear that I’m on a mission.

Maybe I am.

I keep waiting for spring to arrive so we can switch to summer cooking.

It’s not happening.

So every week, on the way to do the shopping, I’m frantically trying to come up with something interesting to do for dinner.

This was the latest.

I’ve wrapped salmon in phyllo, puff pastry, crepes, and now, pasta…. All different tastes and textures….

All good!

Salmon Lasagne Rolls

Total time: 45 minutes


  • 10oz (300gr) salmon
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 4 shallots, sliced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 green garlic, sliced, including greens
  • 1/3 cup dry -cured olives, chopped
  • 1 tsp
    dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried
  • 1 tsp
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 fresh lasagne noodles
  • Béchamel
  • 1 1/2 cups (12oz, 360gr) milk
  • 2 tbs flour
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup (4oz, 125gr) Greek yogurt

Salmon Lasagne Rolls


  • If noodles aren’t very soft and flexible (mine couldn’t be rolled up), soak in hot water to soften while preparing filling.
  • Put salmon in a skillet and add water to barely cover.  
  • Add lemon juice, cover and simmer 10 minutes or until done.
  • Remove and flake.
  • While salmon cooks: sauté shallots, pepper, green garlic and paprika until tender.
  • Remove to a bowl. Stir in herbs, salmon and olives.
  • The Béchamel: In a medium saucepan heat the butter over low heat. 
  • Add flour, cumin, nutmeg and stir with a whisk for 1 minute.
  • Add a little (1/4 cup) of the milk and whisk to combine.
  • Turn heat up to medium and keep adding milk, a little at a time and whisking. 
  • When all of the milk is in, bring to a boil, whisking.
  • Remove from heat, stir in Parmesan and yogurt. 
  • Spoon a little of the Béchamel in a baking dish just large enough to hold the 4 rolls.
  • Divide the salmon mixture into fourths and spoon 1/4 onto the narrow end of each lasagne noodle. Roll up and place in the baking dish.
  • Spoon the remaining Béchamel over the top.
  • Bake 400F (200C) for 20 minute. Remove and serve.

Speaking of spring….

Mon mari finished the bedroom he’s been working on.

Which means that we can set-up the beds.

And I can find the linens and make the beds.

And unpack the last of the boxes to put stuff in our new closets.

And re-upholster my rocking chair that will finally have a home in this bedroom.

And find the rest of the furniture to make it a real bedroom.

Of course, now that this bit of construction is done, I can do the ‘spring cleaning’ upstairs.

The weather is supposed to warm up this weekend.

Which means that I can clean out the wood stove.

Then I can do the ‘spring cleaning’ downstairs.


Since the weather is warming up I need to get all the spring vegetables planted in the potager.

And finish cleaning out the herb garden.

And do all the trimming of the trees and bushes I didn’t get done last fall.

Not to mention that both the lawn and the field need mowing – again.

And the long grass and the weeds around the trees and the fences needs cutting – again.

And we still need to finish bunny-proofing the fence so all the new baby bunnies can’t get in.

No worries, though…. I have almost (but not quite) 2 weeks to get it all done before our friend from Spain gets here.

And still keep up with my blogs and sites and twitter and facebook and google+ and and and….

Yesterday, someone in my French class mentioned being bored.


As in ‘nothing to do’?!?!?!?

In the spring?!?!?!?!?

Which begs the question…. Why am I anxious for spring?

  1. Can’t wait to try this one … I have one kid who loves salmon (or any fish) and isn’t big on pasta; the other doesn’t like any fish and has been known to eat pasta for breakfast, lunch and dinner–and breakfast again the next day. I’ll let you know if it’s a hit at our house.

  2. It is something I need to try as well. Living in a condo I am not sure if I miss all the things you mentioned about my house. Some days I do.

  3. Bored ?? How can anyone lucky enough to live in France be bored or anyone where else for that matter – there are endless books to read, endless walks to take, always endless chores …….

  4. Hard to imagine being bored. Don’t tell your classmate but my mother used to tell us, “If you are bored, you must be boring.” 🙂

  5. Didn’t you hear? Spring is cancelled this year. (It snowed again the other night just after the freezing rain storm.)
    This salmon in puff pastry looks delicious!
