Print Recipe


Fathead Dough

  • 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 medium egg
  • ½ cup almond flour


  • 4 salmon fillets, skinless
  • 1 cup spinach, cooked
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled & chopped
  • 1 shallot peeled & chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 oz Parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten for egg wash


  • Preheat the oven to 190C/370F degrees.

Make the dough

  • Place the mozzarella and cream cheese in a bowl. Cook in the microwave for 60 seconds. Stir and zap for another 30 seconds. If the mixture has not melted give it another blast in the microwave.
  • Give the cheese a good stir so it's evenly melted and add the egg and almond flour.
  • Mix until you have a dough mixture. Don’t be shy about using your hands to mix the dough. If it feels too sticky, add more almond flour.

Make the filling

  • In a frying pan, heat the olive oil on a medium heat.
  • Add the garlic and shallots and cook for 3-5 minutes until tender.
  • Add the spinach, cream cheese, Parmesan, salt pepper and nutmeg and mix well.

To Assemble

  • Cut the fathead dough into quarters.
  • Roll out a quarter of the dough in between two sheets of parchment paper large enough to wrap the salmon. Try to keep it to a rectangle as best you can.
  • Place the salmon in the middle of the rolled dough and spoon a quarter of the spinach mixture on place of the salmon fillet.
  • Bring up the sides of the dough over the salmon until it is covered and sealed.
  • Gently turn over the salmon parcel and place on a parchment paper loaf tin (use a loaf tin size that will fit around the salmon fillet).
  • Repeat for the other fillets.
  • Brush the salmon parcels with an egg wash.
  • Bake for 25 minutes until golden.
