Ingredients

  • 220g salmon fillet

  • 1 sheet puff pastry

  • A handful of spinach

  • 1 tsp Minced garlic

  • 100g Cream cheese

  • salt and pepper

  • egg wash

Directions

  • Add spinach and garlic in a hot pan. Cook for a few minutes without oil. As spinach wilts, drain all the water out from the spinach. Set aside, cool down. Mix well with cream cheese, salt and pepper.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, place the puff pastry and cut into a rectangle which is slightly bigger than the salmon fillet. Save up the leftover pastry.
  • Remove the salmon skin, dry it with paper towel. Season with salt and pepper. Put in the middle of the puff pastry sheet. Place cream cheese mixture on top.
  • Brush the egg wash on the edges of the pastry. Fold one side of the pastry over to cover the fillet. Wrap until the fillet is well-sealed.
  • Place the wrapped fillet upside down on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Brush egg wash all over the, then with a sharp knife, make few cuts on top in each direction in a crosshatch pattern.
  • Bake the wrapped salmon fillet in a preheated oven at 220 C for 20 mins or until the party is golden and cooked through.
  • Serve hot, enjoy!
