  • 4 7 oz salmon fillets
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 shallot chopped
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 3 oz cream cheese
  • 5 oz fresh baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp plain bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 1 lb. package puff pastry
  • 1 egg for egg wash


  • Season the salmon with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a pan, heat butter, chopped shallots, and garlic over medium heat. Sauté until the shallots become translucent.
  • Bring the heat to high and add white wine. Let the liquid cook out for about 5 minutes, then add the cream cheese and sauté for 1 minute.
  • Lastly, add the spinach, bread crumbs, and Parmesan cheese. Sauté just until the spinach softens.
  • Unfold the puff pastry onto a lightly floured surface and roll out the 2 sheets, then cut them in half. So you end up with 4 pieces. I made each piece about 10X 14 inches.
  • Place each seasoned salmon fillet in the middle of each puff pastry sheet. Depending on the size of the fillet, you may need to roll out the puff pastry a little more or less. Leave about 2 inches around the edges.
  • Divide the spinach mixture into 4 equal parts and evenly spread it on top of the 4 fillets. Then brush the edges of the puff pastry with egg wash (1 egg + 1 tsp water).
  • Begin folding the puff pastry over starting with the longer side. When folding over the short edges, brush more of the egg wash before folding.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the salmon wellington seam side down.
  • Make crosshatch slits on top of the Wellington with a knife. Then brush with more egg wash.
  • Bake at 390 degrees Fahrenheit for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.
