I forgot to put up the picture of what I made out of that sliver of pastry that I sliced off when I made the pasties the other day ....
... well it was a lovely little Salmon en Croute
Unfortunately I overcooked it a smidge, I love my pastry light and flaky and this was just a tad dark and hard. But luckily the salmon fillet I found in the freezer was a Chilli Salmon fillet so it had lots of flavour to mask out the slightly overdone pastry. It went wonderfully with the last of the Mixed Leaves and a rather large dollop of Mayo.
Well worth slicing off that end of pastry.
I simply rolled it a little bit thinner, lay the fillet on top and then brushed the edges with leftover egg wash, I tried to plait it but the pastry was too hard to handle so I ended up just sort of folding and sticking with the egg wash and then brushing it all over. So easy to do and having just that tiny bit of pastry turned what could have been a snack into a full and filling meal.
