Prep Time 10 minutes
Course Main Course
Servings 4


  • 1/2 block cream cheese room temperature
  • 10 ounces frozen spinach thawed, squeezed, and drained
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 sheet puff pastry thawed
  • 1 pound salmon fillet
  • 1 large egg for egg wash


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
  • In a bowl, mix room temperature cream cheese, thawed and drained spinach, and shredded mozzarella cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • On a floured surface, roll out the thawed puff pastry sheet into a rectangle.
  • Place the cream cheese mixture in the center of the puff pastry, leaving some space around the edges.
  • Lay the salmon fillet on top, centered within the puff pastry. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Carefully fold the puff pastry over the salmon, sealing the edges firmly. Use water if needed.
  • Transfer the prepared Salmon Wellington to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, seam side down.
  • Make slits on the pastry’s top to allow steam to escape during baking.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg to create an egg wash. Brush it over the pastry for a golden finish.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown, and the salmon reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit (63 degrees Celsius) internally.
  • Remove from the oven, let it rest for a few minutes, then slice and serve your delightful Salmon Wellington. Enjoy!
