  6. Remove from heat.

  11. Top with second sheet of phyllo.
  12. Form salmon into a rectangle by tucking in or rolling under thin end of fillet.
  13. Place salmon fillet in centre of phyllo so long sides of salmon are parallel to long sides of phyllo.
  14. Spread with 1/4 of dill mixture on top and sides of salmon, then gently press into salmon.
  15. Bring long sides of phyllo together over top of salmon.
  16. Fold together accordion-like until they tightly wrap around salmon.
  17. You should now have a long thin rectangle.
  18. Gently bring up both ends to middle of covered salmon and scrunch together so pastry flares out into a ruffle, forming a flower.

  22. May be refrigerated at this point up to 4 hours.
