Puff Pastry Wrapped Salmon
This is so easy, and so delicious!
10 1/2 ounce salmon filet, remove even the little thread-like bones
one sheet of puff pastry (available in the frozen food section of the grocery store)
6 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
Salmon baked in puff pastry, although quick and easy to prepare, is a surprising dish. All you have to do is place a cleaned, boneless salmon fillet onto the middle of some puff pastry. Cut some strips in the pastry along both sides of the fillet, and sprinkle the fillet with a small amount of salt. Put thick slices of mozzarella on top of the fillet. Tuck the ends of the pastry in around the ends of the fillet, then criss-cross the strips over the fillet until it's all covered up. Brush the pastry with egg wash, and sprinkle it with thyme leaves. Put the pastry-wrapped fillet onto a baking sheet and bake in a 375 F degree oven for 20 minutes. Slice and serve while hot and gooey.
