When I first saw someone mention these on a cooking message board that I frequent I knew that one day I would make them. Salmon, goat cheese, buttery phyllo dough, how could these not be delicious?! That was a while ago and I just never got around to making them but let me tell you, I thought of them frequently. So tonight I finally made them. They were not hard to make at all but the process was a bit tedious. It turns out that I really just am not a huge fan of phyllo dough. I have often thought this before but always convinced myself that I SHOULD like it. Well, no more. I will repeat as many times as necessary “I do not love phyllo dough” till it sinks in. Actually the only thing that I really don’t like is something in the consistency of the phyllo. The taste is fine. We actually enjoyed these but decided that they are not worth the work and won’t be making them again. Unless of course I am trying to impress someone because these are impressive. I actually think they would be even better if you added a little spinach into the mix. Give them a try and decide for yourself.

Salmon and Goat Cheese wrapped in Phyllo Dough
adapted from Annie’s Eats

4 1/2lb salmon fillets – skin removed
20 sheets of phyllo dough
1 stick of butter – melted
1 3.5oz goat cheese – we used 4 pepper, you can use any flavor you choose
spices or herbs of your choosing to season salmon and goat cheese

preheat oven to 400 degrees

On a flat surface, we used a plastic cutting board to protect the table, lay out one phyllo sheet, carefully brush it with butter and then lay down another sheet of phyllo. Repeat this process till you have five sheets of phyllo layered. Place a piece of salmon on the phyllo about a third of the way down the sheet, spread a 1/4 of the goat cheese of the salmon and sprinkle with and spices or herbs you like. Take the top of the phyllo and lay over the salmon and fold in the sides of the phyllo. Roll the salmon in the phyllo dough being careful to keep the sides in. Repeat this with all 4 fillets.

Cook for 30 mins or until the phyllo dough is a nice golden brown
