TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (17.3 ounces each) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 8 salmon fillets (6 ounces each), skin removed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 cups shredded cucumber
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. On a lightly floured surface, roll each pastry sheet into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Cut each into two 10-in. x 6-in. rectangles. Place a salmon fillet in the center of each rectangle.
  • 2. Beat egg and water; lightly brush over pastry edges. Bring opposite corners of pastry over each fillet; pinch seams to seal tightly. Place seam side down in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; brush with remaining egg mixture.
  • 3. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. In a small bowl, combine the cucumber, sour cream, mayonnaise, dill and salt. Serve with bundles. Yield: 8 servings.
