Phyllo Wrapped Salmon with Tartar Sauce

Phyllo Wrapped Salmon with Tartar Sauce
Cook / Prep Time: 25 min

Don’t be afraid to work with Phyllo pastry.  They look intimidating but it’s so easy.  Phyllo pastry is available to purchase at your local supermarket.  I would prefer spring salmon with this recipe because of it’s fatty texture and tender texture.  – Jen


Wild Salmon (5-6oz)
Phyllo Pastry
½ cup Mayo
½ a bunch of Fresh Dill (chopped)
2 Tbsp Capers (chopped) plus 1 Tbsp caper pickling juice
1 Lemon (zest and juice)
Olive Oil (as needed)


  • Make Tartar Sauce by combining mayo, lemon juice, lemon zest, chopped dill, chopped capers, caper juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Reserve.
  • For the Phyllo you want to create a square (8”x 8”) in size that is layered by 4 sheets of the Phyllo pastry. Brush each sheet evenly with olive oil to cover then season with a little salt and pepper. Repeat process for all 4 layers.
  • Place Salmon in middle of Phyllo and cover filet with tartar sauce.
  • Pinch up Phyllo around edges of fish.
  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • Place Salmon on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 12-14 mins, or until Phyllo is crisp and golden.
