Look for salmon fillets that are the same size. We found that 6-inch-long fillets work well, leaving the perfect amount of phyllo to wrap the fish on all sides.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a small bowl, combine spinach, cream cheese, and garlic and season with salt and pepper.

  • Lay 1 sheet phyllo on a work surface and lightly brush with butter. (Keep extra phyllo covered while you work.) Stack 2 more sheets on top, brushing each with butter. Cut stack in half crosswise. Repeat with remaining 3 sheets phyllo and more butter to make 4 stacks total.

  • Season salmon with salt and pepper, then place 1 fillet in center of each stack and top with spinach mixture. Fold 2 opposite sides of each stack over spinach mixture and tuck other 2 sides beneath to form a packet. Brush tops and sides with butter. Bake packets on a parchment-lined baking sheet until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Nice idea....little fuss....easy to put together and provided an intriguing addition to the dinner plate! What's not to love about breaking into a crisp, buttery & flaky little package to reveal the pretty pink and green filling!However, flavor was a little bland and next time I would work to keep it simple....but add something to brighten the flavor without adding too much work. The simplicity of this is one of its appealing qualities...minimum effort..maximum effect! Lemon zest, chives,dill?

I was looking for a salmon and spinach recipe for a family Saturday night meal - found this, it was amazing, and really easy to do. Simple instructions, no fiddly stuff, few ingredients and the result was amazing. The whole family raved about it.
