COULIBIAC

This impressive dish is a classic. The salmon is enclosed in a rich crust with layers of onion, mushroom, rice, and hard-cooked eggs.

Serves 6 to 8

1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
2 cups cooked rice
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced
1/2 cup veloutÚ sauce
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 recipe brioche dough (see recipe below)
1 egg, beaten
2 cups veloutÚ sauce

PREPARATION
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash salmon; pat dry. Remove any bones and skin. Slice salmon thin and season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. SautÚ onion in oil. Add the mushrooms and parsley. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes.
Roll out brioche dough into a rectangle 1/4 inch thick. Place on a baking sheet. Arrange a layer of onion mix, rice, and eggs over the whole length of dough to within one inch from edges. Top with salmon slices. Place remaining onion mix, rice and eggs over salmon.
Top with remaining salmon.
Pour veloutÚ over filling. Brush edges of dough with water. Fold over mix. Seal all edges and roll pastry so that seam is underneath. Brush dough with egg. Decorate with pieces of dough. Let rise at room temperature for 30 minutes. Bake at 375 F for 30 minutes.
To serve:
Place the whole coulibiac on a platter for display. Slice into portions. Serve on warm plates. Serve veloutÚ sauce separately.
