Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together 6 oz. of cream cheese and 1/2 cup of mayonnaise until smooth. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together salmon, onions, celery, pimentos, peas, parsley, dill and lemon zest. Mix with the cream cheese mixture. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spray a sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray. Lay1 sheet of puff pastry on pan.
  5. Mound the salmon filling evenly across from one side to the other side, about 2 inches from the bottom end. Wrap the pastry over the top. Pinch the bottom and top pastry, rolling to seal it closed. Brush pastry with beaten egg and refrigerate for 15 minutes before baking.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest 10 minutes before serving.
  7. While the pastry is baking, make the sauce. With a fork or hand mixer, blend 6 oz. of cream cheese with 1/2 cup mayonnaise until combined. Mix in the cucumber.
  8. Slice salmon and serve with sauce. Enjoy!

Overall Good. Even my husband who does not like salmon liked this dish. We did not care for the sauce on top, but this was an optional addition. I will make this again, but it is not something I would make for company.

This was quite good! A great way to use up leftovers. I didn't make the cucumber sauce, so I increased the cream cheese in the filling and added sharp cheddar. I also used dried herbs, including lemon pepper instead of lemon zest. Do follow the recomendation to taste the filling and adjust. I decided to add some celery salt. It turned into enough filling for two pastries. It is rich, so serving with sliced tomatoes was ideal. I'll be saving this one!
