Ingredients

Medium fat soft cheese

100 g, with garlic and herbs

Pesto Sauce

1 tablespoons, level

Salmon, grilled

460 g, 4 x 115g skinless fillets

Puff Pastry Block

100 g, uncooked

Calorie controlled cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Salt

1 pinch

Black pepper

¼ teaspoons

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6/200˚C/fan oven 180˚C. Mix together the soft cheese, pesto and seasoning in a bowl. Put the salmon fillets on a board and spoon a quarter of the cheese mixture on to the middle of the top of each fillet.
  2. Cut the pastry in half. On a piece of parchment paper, roll out each half to form a rectangle measuring 6 cm x 24 cm (2½ inches x 9½ inches) then cut in half lengthways. Wrap each rectangle around the middle of each salmon fillet and over the dollop of soft cheese, like a belt.
  3. Transfer to a non stick baking tray and spray with the cooking spray. Bake for 15 minutes until the pastry is golden and the salmon is cooked. Serve immediately.
