Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Divide the salmon into two equal pieces, using any tail trimmings as necessary.
  3. Lay the pastry sheet out and unroll.
  4. Place one-half of the salmon, skinned side up, in the center of the pastry.
  5. Add the cream cheese and spread out as necessary. Place the other half on top.
  6. Wrap the fish in the pastry, removing any bulky excess and sealing any edges with egg wash.
  7. Turn over, egg wash the top, cut three slits and decorate with any pastry trimmings.
  8. Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes, or until the pastry is crisp and golden brown and the fish fully cooked yet still moist.
  9. Serve hot, in slices, with the potatoes and salad.
