  • 1 half side of salmon, roughly 16 oz
  • 1 pack ready rolled pastry crust
  • 4 oz creamy garlic and herb soft cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten with a splash of water


  • 1 Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • 2 Divide the salmon into two equal pieces, using any tail trimmings as necessary.
  • 3 Lay the pastry sheet out and unroll.
  • 4 Place one-half of the salmon, skinned side up, in the center of the pastry.
  • 5 Add the cream cheese and spread out as necessary. Place the other half on top.
  • 6 Wrap the fish in the pastry, removing any bulky excess and sealing any edges with egg wash.
  • 7 Turn over, egg wash the top, cut three slits and decorate with any pastry trimmings.
  • 8 Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes, or until the pastry is crisp and golden brown and the fish fully cooked yet still moist.
  • 9 Serve hot, in slices, with the potatoes and salad.
