Filo Wrapped Salmon

Finding different ways to prepare salmon without accidentally over cooking it can be difficult. Enter this recipe, which I am in love with. Wrapping salmon in filo (or phyllo) and placing in the oven is fool-proof with gourmet results. What I really like is this recipe calls for tomato sauce, which leaves it open to how you enjoy your sauce. Whether you like spicy sauce, like me, or something sweeter, the end results are fully delicious. Serve with a side of vegetables, like broccoli with soy sauce. This recipe is now on our favorites list because the salmon comes out moist, hearty, and yummy.

Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs salmon, cut into 4 fillets
2 Tbsp olive oil, for brushing
16 phyllo pastry sheets
2 1/2 cups tomato sauce
Preparation
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Preparation

Take 4 sheets filo pastry piled together and brush with a little olive oil. Place a piece of fish on top towards the bottom edge. Top with one or two spoonfuls of tomato sauce, spreading it in an even layer.
Roll the fish in the pastry, taking care to enclose the filling completely to make a little parcel. Brush outside with olive oil.
Place on a baking sheet and repeat with the remaining fillets. You should have half the sauce left over to serve with the fish.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, reheat the remaining tomato sauce. Serve with the fish parcels.
