  1. In a food processor, pulse the salmon, soft cheese, dill and a little seasoning until just combined. Unroll a sheet of puff pastry and cut into 3 pieces lengthways. Divide the filling along the middle of each piece, brush borders with beaten egg, then fold up and seal.

  2. Cut each roll into 8-10 bite-size pieces, then place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment, cover with cling film and freeze. To serve, glaze with beaten egg and cook at 200C/180C fan/gas 6 for 25-30 mins until puffed and golden.

Really delicious. Only problem was that I kept them on the baking parchment and this resulted in them having rather soggy bottoms. Nevertheless delicious and everyone loved them.

An excellent alternative to the trusty sausage roll. Like another poster, I poached fresh salmon in milk with bay leaves, salt and pepper and crushed garlic. Once cooked I 'fished out' the crushed garlic, flaked the salmon and added the garlic to give some depth to the flavour and followed the rest of the recipe. They didn't last long! Will be making them again soon! :-)

Very easy and very nice; my guests loved it. I used Boursin cheese to give more taste. As I didn't have enough fish I filled the last puffs with cheese only and that's very nice too.

Yummy - made these instead of sausage rolls for a buffet, a big success with everyone!

Delicious. I poached fresh salmon with milk, bay leaves and cloves. Only problem was the filling came out very runny. I used cream cheese - is that why? or maybe because i didn't let the salmon cool enough before adding to the mixture?

Considering how nice this is, I couldn't believe how easy it was to make. Simple but effective! A great party food that can be made well in advance.

So easy, and a big success at parties! Only downside was admitting how little cooking skill I needed to bake them!

If I freeze these, are the cooking instructions straight from freezer or should I defrost first?

We love this recipe. I usually buy 2 packs of the pastry and roll it out more. For the filling I use 600g of full fat soft cheese, 600g of salmon and the dill. I grill the salmon until just cooked. Today I am taking half the puffs to a family buffet and the rest are great to get out of the freezer as and when needed for packed lunches/teas, picnics etc. If taking just a handful out at a time I will brush with milk instead.
