Salmon Wrapped in Phyllo

3 Mar

I love salmon, and we try to eat fish at least once a week. Mainly because it’s good for us, but also because we get bored with chicken and don’t like to eat a lot of red meat.

My mom has been telling me about this recipe for a while, and I finally tried it. There’s no real recipe…she just told me her method over the phone and I made it.

Phyllo dough can be a little tough to work with. I didn’t take it out of the freezer soon enough, so it was a little brittle. Ideally, take it out of the freezer in the morning and put it in the refrigerator. Then, when you start to work with it, work quickly.

This is very simple and very good!

Salmon in Phyllo Dough


  • 8 sheets phyllo dough
  • 2 portions salmon
  • Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Take the phyllo dough out of the refrigerator. Spread one layer out and spray with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining sheets, making a stack.

Cut rectangle in half to make two smaller rectangles.

Place one portion of salmon in the middle of each rectangle and spread with mustard. Sprinkle with pepper and just a little bit of salt.


Wrap phyllo around salmon and place on baking tray, seam side down.


Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
