Quick and Easy Salmon Coulibiac – inspired by Hairy Bikers

Gather your ingredients

This is one of my OMG,-forgot-to-defrost-something-for-dinner-what-can-we-have-meals.

It was inspired by the Hairy Biker’s recipe but is made from store cupboard and freezer ingredients.

From start to finish, including baking time this recipe takes about 45 minutes and is really delicious. The day I took the photos, I used Uncle Ben’s Lemon and Rosemary Rice so I left out the lemon. Normally I make it without the prawns as my husband is allergic to them.
