DIRECTIONS

  • Cook rice until tender. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Add leek; sauté until beginning to soften, about 4 minutes.
  • Add mushrooms. Cover skillet; cook until mushrooms release their juices, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  • Uncover skillet. Increase heat to medium-high; sauté until liquid evaporates, about 3 minutes.
  • Transfer to bowl. Add rice. Season with salt and pepper. Cool completely.
  • Butter large baking sheet.
  • Cut one pastry sheet into 4 equal squares. Divide rice mixture among centers of squares.
  • Set salmon atop rice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bring pastry corners up around salmon (pastry will not enclose salmon completely.)
  • Cut remaining pastry into 4 equal squares. Lay 1 square atop each salmon fillet, tucking corners under bottom pastry to enclose salmon completely.
  • Pinch edges together to seal, brushing with egg mixture.
  • Arrange salmon packages, seam side down, on prepared baking sheet. Cover and chill 30 minutes. (Can be made 8 hours ahead. Keep chilled.).
  • Preheat oven to 400°F Brush top of pastry with egg mixture.
