  3. Preheat a chargrill or barbecue over medium-high heat. Cook salmon for 1 minute each side or until browned. Transfer to a plate. Cool.
  4. Roll each pastry sheet on a lightly f loured surface to a 25cm x 30cm rectangle. Cut each sheet into two 15cm x 25cm rectangles. Lay 1 piece of pastry on a flat surface.
