Salmon Wellington

This is a nontraditional way of making salmon wellington. The smoked salmon, cream cheese mixture melts into the salmon fillet creating a rich moist dish. This is actually quite a simple recipe that can be prepared in less than an hour. A wonderful way to impress your guests. This recipe serves 2-4 people, depending on size of fillet. I usually accompany this dish with a pasta and green vegetables. A white wine sauce can be prepared for this recipe and will go ideally with pasta, or you can use a sauce like alfredo for the pasta which will go ideally with the salmon wellington...

Ingredients:

1/4 cup smoked salmon
1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons white wine
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 pound evenly thick salmon fillet, with skin removed
6-8 sheets filo pastry

Directions:

Mix together the first 5 ingredients. Set aside.
To prepare filo pastry, lightly brush an individual sheet of filo with melted butter the place another sheet on top, then continue with the melted butter and filo pastry layers until you have about 6-8 sheets together.

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the centre of the pastry to the shape of salmon fillet. Place the fillet on top. Trim slightly and brush egg wash or butter on the edges and bring the pastry up and over the fillet to cover and seal the edges. Trim so that the edges of the pastry are not too thick. Flip over and place, sealed side down on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting. May be served with your favorite white wine cream sauce.

Options:

Although this recipe calls for filo pastry, you may use traditional pie crust pastry. Be sure it is not too thick.
