Coulibiac: from Russia to France

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The classic coulibiac (kulebiaka, in Russian transliteration) is a French adaptation of a Russian salmon dish.

Traditionally made with fresh salmon, rice, mushrooms and shallots, hard-cooked eggs and dill, the dish is wrapped en croute in a crisp swaddling of a brioche-like pastry and is usually oval-shaped and made in a variety of sizes.
