Its a surprisingly delicious way of serving salmon, a surprise because when I first made it, I just put things in first and - then had to remember what I had done! Its a reasonably healthy dish too being a mixture of freshly cooked salmon, tomatoes etc. wrapped in puff pastry It serves a whole bunch of friends - either as a hot meal and wonderful at a buffet as you can prepare it well ahead of time and serve it cold.
