I was very pleased with this speedy little recipe.
This is a good last minute meal, ideal as an appetizer or as an easy lunch when you have little time on your hands. This is when shop bought pastry comes really handy.
You can use fresh or frozen fish and spinach or other vegetables you like providing that they are not too watery or they will make your pastry too soggy.
All you do is wrapping the fish with the vegetables in puff pastry and then pop your parcel in the oven for about 25 minutes. Then slice and serve, easy.
I will almost certainly make this as one of my Christmas appetizers as there is so much more food I will need to prepare.
Hope you enjoy it.

Wash the spinach in cold water then drain.
In a large pan stir fry the garlic with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Add the spinach, salt and pepper and cook them for 4 to 5 minutes until soft. Let them cool down and then ring them well to remove as much water as possible. Using a knife cut them into small bits.
If there is a skin on your salmon fillet remove it with a knife then season the fish with salt and pepper.
Unroll the puff pastry sheet on your floured worktop. Pierce the middle with a fork and then place the salmon fillet on it.
Put the spinach on top of the salmon and wrap the salmon with the pastry. Cut off any excess pastry and use it to decorate your parcel.
Brush the pastry with milk and sprinkle it with the sesame seeds.
Place the roll on a baking tray and cook at 200C or 390 F for approximately 25 to 30 minutes until golden.
Let it cool down a little then slice and enjoy!
