Method

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees

Thaw Pastry Sheets (on a floured cutting board for about 20 minutes)

Chop Spinach (rough chop)

Combine olive oil, feta, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl mixing together using a fork

Add spinach and toss. Set aside.

Using a paring knife, cut each pastry sheet lengthwise along folded crease (yields 6 cuts total)

Then, cut each strip in two along the width (yields 12 cuts total)

Using a fork, prick each pastry cutout about 4 or 5 times

Using a pastry bush, brush each strip with cold water

Place pastry cuts on a non-stick sheet pan

Using a fork or gloved hand, spread spinach mix on pastry sheets, leaving space at the edges

Place sheet pan in the oven and bake approximately 20 minutes.

Using a knife, gently break apart salmon (brush with a bit of olive oil if desired)

Remove sheet pan from oven.

Using a small tong, place a good wedge of salmon atop each puff pastry.

Dress each puff pastry with dill leaves and serve
