• 2 packets Aoraki Pōhutukawa hot smoked salmon
• Extra virgin avocado oil
• 300g Superb Herb kale leaves
• Salt and pepper, to season
• ½ cup Superb Herb dill, chopped
• 3 tbsp cream cheese
• 8 sheets filo pastry, thawed
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Slice each piece of salmon into 2 pieces – 4 pieces total.
  3. In a non-stick pan over medium heat, add 1 teaspoon oil. Add kale leaves and season. Fry for 2-3 minutes or until kale wilts. Remove kale from pan, leave to cool, then press out extra moisture. Stir through dill and cream cheese until well combined. Set aside.
  4. Take 1 sheet of filo pastry and place on a clean work surface. Brush with oil and place a second sheet of filo pastry on top, brushing with oil. Repeat until you have 4 sheets stacked. Cut in half lengthwise. Add ½ piece of salmon to middle of the pastry and top with a portion of kale mixture. Fold filo around salmon into a pouch, then lay on baking paper, seam-side down. Repeat 4 times with the remaining ingredients to make 4 more pouches. Liberally brush with oil.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the pastry is golden and flakey. Let cool for 5 minutes, then serve warm.
