METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 170c.

  2. Thinly slice the new potatoes into rounds. Thinly slice the asparagus stems into rounds, reserving the tips and discarding the woody base.

  3. Take two 20cm x 50cm sheets of baking paper and place the sliced potato evenly on each in the bottom third of the paper. Top the potato with the asparagus rounds, followed by the salmon, butter, dill, asparagus tips and lemon slices. Season with salt & pepper to taste.

  4. Brush the edges of the paper with the beaten egg and fold in half to seal. Next, crimp the sealed edges with a series of small folds to create a tight seal. The finished folded parcel should resemble a pasty. Place on a tray and bake for 20 minutes.

  5. Place the Hellmann’s mayonnaise, lemon zest & juice, olive oil & parsley in a bowl, mix well and season to taste.

  6. Remove parcels from the oven, tear open and spoon over the sauce.
