A few notes on the recipe:

Puff Pastry

You should be able to eas­i­ly find puff pas­try at your gro­cery store. If not, Trad­er Joe’s sells a deli­cious one, that is direct­ly import­ed from France! It looks like this:

You will find it in the frozen aisle.

Spinach

For the spinach, you could use fresh or frozen baby spinach. I used frozen chopped baby spinach because it was eas­i­er. How­ev­er, feel free to use fresh spinach if you pre­fer it. Also, if you do not like spinach, leek goes very well with salmon and is a great sub­sti­tute.

Instruc­tions
  1. Cook the spinach. (Since I bought frozen spinach, I cooked the spinach in the microwave for about 3 min­utes.)
  2. Roll out the puff pas­try in a rec­tan­gle. On each longest side of the rec­tan­gle, cut stripes with a knife. Keep an uncut space in the mid­dle of the rec­tan­gle. See pic­ture.

  3. In the mid­dle uncut space of the rec­tan­gle, spread the cream cheese. Add the smoked salmon on top of the cream cheese, and then the spinach on top of the salmon, and final­ly the slices of pro­volone on top of the spinach. Fold each short­er side of the rec­tan­gle over your fill­ing so it won’t come out of the puff pas­try. See pic­ture.

  4. Fold each stripe over your fill­ing, alter­nat­ing stripes from each side. See pic­ture.

  5. Once the fill­ing is com­plete­ly cov­ered with stripes of puff pas­try, use a pas­try brush to brush a beat­en egg on the pas­try (egg wash).

  6. Bake in oven at 350 degrees Fahren­heit in a pan cov­ered with parch­ment paper. It should take about 30 min­utes. Check to see if it is ready. It is ready when the puff pas­try is gold­en brown. Serve warm. Enjoy!
