Salmon Baked in Filo...a Greek Christmas time treat

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at

about 5 sheets of filo dough per salmon fillet
salmon fillets, boneless
extra virgin olive oil
fine sea salt
freshly ground peppercorns
lime zest
lime juice
green onion, thinly sliced
dried dill weed
about 4 tablespoons melted butter per serving
cayenne or smoked paprika

Remove the frozen filo dough from freezer and allow to thaw as per package directions. In meantime, brush salmon fillets with olive oil, and sprinkle with sea salt, pepper, lime zest, lime juice, green onion slices, and dill weed. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On baking sheet with sides, start making the salmon bundles by layering filo sheets, one piece at a time, brushing each with the melted butter. I use about 5 sheets per bundle, can be varied as to size or shape of fish, cutting the dough sheets to be about double the size of the fish. Bring up the edges, and tie with kitchen string. Sprinkle with a little butter and sprinkle with smoked paprika or cayenne. Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes, or until nicely browned.
