This easy pastry-wrapped salmon is wonderful for a party, and looks very good.
Preheat the oven to 220ºC, and preheat a baking sheet to get very hot.
Cut the peppers in half, remove the seeds and place cut-side down on to a baking sheet. Slide into the preheated oven for about 30 minutes until charred and soft. Transfer to an oiled bowl, cover tightly with cling film, and leave until cool enough to handle. Remove the skin from the peppers and cut the flesh into thick strips.
Roll the pastry large enough to wrap the salmon. Place one fillet of salmon on to the centre of the pastry, season with salt and pepper, and arrange the peppers and basil on top. Season the second side of salmon, and place on top of the other one so it mirrors the underneath one.
Working on the pastry stretching out on either side of the salmon, make straight horizontal slits about 2.5 cm (1in) wide, cutting from the salmon outwards to the edge of the pastry. Lift the cut strips of pastry across the fish to form a plait. Start from the broadest end of the fish, alternating between each side. Brush with egg glaze. Carefully transfer to the hot baking sheet in the preheated oven, and bake for about 30-40 minutes until golden brown. Rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
To make the sauce, heat the cream, add the lemon juice, pesto and some salt and pepper. Add the basil just before serving to prevent discolouring. Serve the salmon hot in slices with the hot sauce.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
