How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the shallot and sauté until softened but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add the spinach and garlic, season with salt and pepper.
  • In a food processor or with a hand blender, pulse 1st 4 ingredients for basil cream cheese until pesto like consistency.
  • Place cream cheese in a bowl and stir to make creamy. Add the basil sauce and stir to evenly incorporate.
  • Lay out the puff pastry on lightly floured surface, roll out a littie bit, cut into 6 equal squares. Season salmon fillets with salt and place a thick layer of cream cheese mixture on one side of the puff pastry squares. Place each salmon fillet in the middle of each pastry square. Top salmon with spinach mixture. Brush edges with egg wash, fold edges over and press to seal. Flip packets over, place on baking sheet, shaping it nicely and lightly score tops with a sharp paring knife. Brush with beaten egg.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the pastry is crisp and browned. Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes. Cut in half on the diagonal. Serve with pan fried potatoes and drizzle with any extra basil sauce.
