Salmon in Pastry

Recipe by Ceezie
READY IN: 40mins




  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll pastry into four pieces, each about 5 by 8 inches.
  • Transfer two pieces to a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Remove skin from salmon and place a fillet in center of each of those pieces.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • With a sharp knife, cut two small slits into top of each pastry so steam can escape during baking.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until pastry has risen and is crisp and golden.
