As we make our way into the Spring season, the weather gets a little more warmer and scenery more alive! Who wants to be inside?
Time to start thinking about picnics and food on the go! Maybe some lighter fare..
I know you what me talk a out about Wild Planet Foods, this is another reason why! Their salmon!! Yes, salmon! Another fish that is as popular and versatile as tuna, but a smidge more!
Around the Spring season you tend to see salmon take a forefront with dishes. I love tuna salad and I like to alternate it with salmon. I’ve started from fresh salmon, ok, ok, leftover salmon.
With Wild Planet Foods Wild sockeye salmon it’s as fresh as if I had just cooked it! And since I want to be able to make it quick, easy and on the go, I need a vessel besides Tupperware. Ah ha! I’ve got a package of puff pastry sheets in the freezer!!
So here’s my ingredients:
I made my simple salmon salad of :
2 cans of wild sockeye salmon
One package of cream cheese
2-3 teaspoons Lemon juice
Fine chopped celery
One tablespoon dried dill weed
2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise
Puff pastry sheets
I have an “empanada” mood which has helped in forming my salmon salad pockets.
You could also use a round cookie cutter and fold them over. How many you yield will depend on the size you make. Don’t forget to dab a little water on the edges to seal your pastry. Once you’ve set them on your baking sheet, brush a little egg wash on them .
Bake at 425° for about 15-20 minutes, golden brown. And voilà….
Easy to take to the botanical gardens, or just out to the park.
Hope you like it!!
Special thanks to Wild Planet Foods for sharing their wild sockeye salmon to create this dish!
