Loved this recipe. I made it tonight but I changed it a little - for the butter mix instead of the fresh basil I used a teaspoon of dried (didn't have any). I also added 3 cloves of garlic finely chopped, 2 green onions finely chopped (only green part) and a couple tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro. For the fish I seasoned it lightly with paprika and a drizzle of fresh lemon along with the salt and pepper.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Using a rolling pin, roll pastry into four pieces, each about 5 by 8 inches.
  3. Transfer two pieces to a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Remove skin from salmon and place a fillet in center of each of those pieces.
  5. In a small bowl, combine parsley, basil, and butter. Stir until herbs are thoroughly mixed inches Season with salt and pepper. Spread butter mixture on top of salmon.
  6. Dip a pastry brush into beaten egg and let excess run off. Brush edges of pastry around salmon with egg. Cover each piece with remaining puff pastry.
  7. Pinch pastry together firmly to seal, then lightly press tines of a dinner fork along edges for a decorative effect. Brush top of pastry with remaining egg.
  8. With a sharp knife, cut two small slits into top of each pastry so steam can escape during baking.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes or until pastry has risen and is crisp and golden.
