Crafted Kosher sent me some amazing Black Truffle Pate and Truffle Oil. I wanted to create something special which would maximize the flavor of these delicious items. The idea for Salmon Wellington popped into my mind. Now, Wellington usually connotes, tournedos, liver pate and puff pastry. How about, salmon fillets, Black Truffle Pate, and fresh spinach all wrapped up in filo dough with truffle oil between the sheets of filo. In my culinary world, you can never have too many truffles!
