Nutritional values

A pair that is as pretty as they are harmonious: the tender pike-perch fillet is extremely low in fat; the salmon provides valuable omega-3 fatty acids. The cream sauce for the delicious leek also contains mainly unsaturated fatty acids - it is prepared with soy cream instead of cream.

Soy cream is not only a good alternative to cream or crème fraîche for people with lactose intolerance: since it contains only about 17 grams of fat instead of 30, but no cholesterol, it helps to enjoy a figure- and heart-conscious lifestyle.

Preparation steps

Salmon Perch Rolls preparation step 1

Rinse the fish fillets and pat dry with paper towels. Halve salmon fillet with a sharp knife horizontally to make a large piece with both halves still attached to each other.

Salmon Perch Rolls preparation step 2

Place salmon fillet on a piece of plastic wrap, cover with plastic wrap and gently pound flat so that it is approximately 1/4 inch thick.

Salmon Perch Rolls preparation step 3

Put perch fillet between 2 layers of plastic wrap and flatten slightly (approximately 1/8 inch thick).

Salmon Perch Rolls preparation step 4

Rinse leeks, trim and cut into thin rings.

Salmon Perch Rolls preparation step 5

Rinse chives, shake dry and cut into very small rings.

Salmon Perch Rolls preparation step 6

Mix together cream cheese, creme fraiche, horseradish, mustard and 1 tablespoon chopped chives in a small bowl until creamy.

Remove the plastic wrap from the salmon fillet. Place the fillet on a large piece of aluminum foil (approximately 20 x 12 inches) and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brush with 2 tablespoons of the mixed cheese.

Salmon Perch Rolls preparation step 8

Take perch fillets from the plastic wrap and place lengthwise on the salmon. Spread remaining cheese over perch.

Salmon Perch Rolls preparation step 9

Slowly roll salmon fillet using the aluminum foil from the long side to roll; turn in the two ends of foil and twist like a piece of wrapped candy. Wrap roll in another piece of aluminum foil and seal the ends firmly by folding.

Fill a large pot or roaster about halfway with water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, put in the salmon perch rolls and let simmer over medium heat for 10-12 minutes.

Meanwhile, boil the leek rings with vegetable broth in a pot. Season with salt and pepper, cover and cook for 7-8 minutes over medium heat.

Take rolls out of the water with a skimmer and let them rest for 3-4 minutes. Stir soy creamer into the leeks and bring to a boil in the open pot.

Carefully remove aluminum foil from rolls and cut into slices with a sharp knife. Stir remaining chives into the leeks. Serve leeks and salmon perch rolls on plates.
