Salmon Packets

Source: Martha Stewart's Everyday Food

Serves 4; Prep time: 15 minutes; Total time: 25 minutes

To ensure that the packets cook evenly, buy salmon fillets that are uniform in size.

8 phyllo sheets, thawed
2 to 3 tablespoons butter, melted (I used olive oil to cut down the saturated fat)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
4 boneless, skinless salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 1/3 tablespoons creamed horseradish
1 egg, beaten

1. Preheat oven to 425°. Lay 1 phyllo sheet on a clean work surface. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon parsley. Top with another phyllo sheet.

2. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Place one fillet 3 inches from short end of dough; spread 1 teaspoon creamed horseradish on top.

3. Make salmon packet: Carefully fold the end of the dough over one fillet; gently fold in both of the long sides of the dough. Roll salmon over folded sides to form packet. Repeat process, making four packets. Brush tops and sides of packets with egg.

4. Place packets on a baking sheet; bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Serve hot.
