  • 2  x 500g packets shortcrust pastry, (use a butter version such as Jus-Rol Shortcrust Pastry sheets, £1.51 for 450g from supermarkets)
  • 1 kilogram(s) (2.2lb) piece salmon fillets, skinless
  • A few sprigs of dill, chopped
  • 1  lime
  • 1  egg, beaten

Method

  1. Preheat oven to gas mark 6/200?C (180?C in a fan oven). Roll pastry out so you can wrap salmon in it completely (it should be just a bit thinner than a £1 coin). Roll over a lattice cutter and gently ease the lattice open. Lay it on a buttered or oiled baking sheet (it will hang over edges). Put salmon in middle. If it has a thinner tail-end, tuck it under. Season with salt and ground black pepper, sprinkle with dill, and squeeze over lime juice. Fold pastry over into a neat parcel (the join will be at the top, so trim edge neatly), making sure you don't have lumps of pastry as these won't cook through properly. Trim off excess and cut out leaf shapes.
  2. Brush with egg glaze and arrange leaf shapes on top. Glaze decorations. Bake for 30 mins or till pastry is crisp and golden.
