Smoked Salmon, Spinach Turnover

Simple, but decadent appetizer that comes together in minutes.
A package of Puff pastry should be in everyones freezer
for the unexpected guests or the occasional indulgence.
Puff pastry can be filled with almost anything,
this is a great place to be creative and use whatever you have on hand.
Here I have used smoked salmon*, frozen chopped spinach, red onion, and a little cream cheese as a binder. An egg wash is brushed along the edges of the pastry before folding over to help with the seal, as well as across the top of the turnover to enhance browning and add a nice gloss when baked. I substituted a small amount of mayonnaise for the egg wash, and sprinkled with red Hawaiian rock salt.

•canned Alaska pink or red salmon is available at all major grocers, and works equally well All canned salmon is wild caught making it that much better.
