Instructions

Prep
1

Unroll the puff pastry on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place another piece of parchment on top. With a rolling pin, roll the pastry to create a 14x10-inch rectangle, then cut in half (use 2 baking sheets for 4 ppl). Cover with plastic and refrigerate. Peel, then finely chop shallot. Finely chop dill. Zest, then juice lemon. Stir together 1/2 tsp lemon juice, 1/2 tsp lemon zest, 1 1/2 tbsp dill (dbl all for 4 ppl) and cream cheese in a medium bowl.

Cook spinach
2

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then shallots. Cook, stirring, until softened, 1-2 min. Add spinach and season with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper (dbl both for 4 ppl). Cook until spinach is completely wilted and moisture is absorbed, 3-5 min. Transfer spinach to bowl with cream cheese mixture and stir to combine.

Prep en croûte
3

Pat salmon dry with paper towels, then season with salt and pepper. Working on the baking sheet, place one piece of salmon on the top half of one pastry piece, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the top and sides. Divide and spread spinach mixture over the salmon. Brush the borders lightly with a little water, then fold the bottom of the pastry over the salmon so pastry edges meet. Repeat with remaining salmon and pastry.

Bake en croûte
4

Seal the pastry by gently pressing a fork along the edges, creating a 1/2-inch border. Cut two small slits on the pastry tops for venting. Brush pastry surfaces with 1/2 tbsp of oil (dbl for 4 ppl). Bake in the top of the oven until salmon is cooked through and pastry is golden, 22-26 min.**

Salad prep
5

Core and cut bell pepper into 1/4-inch slices. Peel and finely mince or grate garlic. Rinse half the capers (all for 4 ppl), dry thoroughly with paper towel and finely chop. Whisk together capers, garlic, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 tsp lemon zest, 2 tbsp oil (dbl all for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper
