Phyllo Wrapped Salmon with Goat Cheese

Lately, I have been trying to incorporate a lot more fish and seafood into our meals. We used to eat fish at least twice a week and somehow my meal planning stepped away from that temporarily. We are very fortunate to live so close to the water and fresh seafood is available to us year round — I really have no excuse! This was very good. It has a nice flaky crust with a creamy tender, and the goat cheese adds a nice element to the salmon.

Phyllo Wrapped Salmon with Goat Cheese


2 salmon fillets

1-2 oz. herbed goat cheese

12 sheets phyllo dough

4 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

salt and pepper


Preheat the oven to 400°. 

On a work surface, layer 6 pieces of phyllo dough brushing with melted butter in between each layer. Place one salmon fillet in the corner of the phyllo dough and season with salt and pepper. Spread half of the goat cheese on top of the salmon. Roll up the salmon making sure to keep all ends tucked in. Trim any excess dough. Place seam side down on a baking sheet and brush tops with melted butter. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until phyllo is golden brown.
