MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 14, 2011

So I always hate it when people review a recipe and have changed it so much that it's hardly recognizable! But I must confess I changed it. Here's the deal: I didn't have puff pastry, but I had filo dough thawed in the refrigerator since mid-January, and I really needed to use it up. So instead of the puff pastry, I used the filo. Just plopped the salmon in the middle with the scallop mixture on top and folded over the layers. Butter in between each layer. So to make up for the extra butter I was using, instead of whipping cream I used nonfat Fage yogurt. If you haven't used it, it just isn't any regular yogurt. It's extra thick, almost spreadable. Anyway, both substitutions were great. This is not only delicious, it's a smashing presentation, and it looks like you slaved for hours...Made it for Valentine's Day dinner and hubby says it's a keeper for sure. Next time I'll try the puff pastry. : )
