This was the first recipe that I made with Phyllo dough. It was a task to get the salmon wrapped up and I may have destroyed the rest of the dough, but the dough was great cooked. It was very flaky and a nice brown color. The rest of the dish was very good the taste of the spinach and the fish went well together.
