Assembly: (Pre Heat Oven To 375 degrees)

  1. Gently unfold your puff pastries and lay on a flat surface. Cut your pastry to comfortably fit around your salmon allowing for some additional space for filling.
  2. Lightly coat your salmon filets with your mustard And place in the center of puff pastry.
  3. Remove your filling from the fridge and place a 1” layer upon the top of each salmon filet.
  4. Now its time for the fun stuff! Wrap the puff pastry around your salmon like a present and slice to small (1-2”) slits in the top for steam venting.
  5. Optional: If you are feeling crafty. You may cut off excess pasty and place it on the surface to create festive designs.
  6. In a small mixing bowl mix together your egg and 1/8 cup water to create your egg wash.
  7. Using a bbq or basting brush simple baste the top of your pastries with the egg wash.
  8. Bake!:
    1. Line a cookie sheet with foil and place pastries in the center at least 2-3 inches apart.
    2. Place pastries/cookie sheet in oven and bake at 375 degrees until the puff pastry is in fact puffed and golden brown (approx.. 30-40 minutes).
