Ingredients

  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • 2 packs ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 100g baby spinach
  • 180g full-fat cream cheese
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped chives
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method

  • Preheat your oven to 200C/180C fan. Lay the fish fillets flat on the work surface, skin down. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Combine 1 tsp of butter and baby spinach in a saucepan over high heat. Stir until spinach has wilted.

  • Place spinach in a bowl and mix in cream cheese and garlic. Season to taste. Place mixture over the salmon and roll up.

  • Place salmon rolls in the fridge for 10 minutes.

  • Unroll the puff pastry, then cut the pastry in half. Put one salmon fillet on one side of each rectangle, creating a parcel.

  • Brush each rectangle with egg wash.

  • Crimp the edges together. With the tip of a sharp knife, slash the top of each pouch to allow the steam to escape.

  • Place the parcels on a baking tray and bake for 25 minutes.

  • Eat while still hot.

  • Serving Suggestions: Serve with hollandaise flavoured with freshly chopped dill. Or, you may choose to serve with potato wedges, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, potato salad or any green salad.
