Enjoy a taste of Greece with these Greek Phyllo Salmon Packets. Fresh salmon topped with a feta and grape filling wrapped in crispy phyllo dough and served with a side of tzatziki, it is the perfect seafood dinner.
Welcome to Food Done Light and my inaugural recipe! I picked today to start my new adventure as it also coincides with my daughter’s first day of kindergarten. I figure if she can get on the “big girl” bus and go to kindergarten, I can start my new “job”! I’ve been planning and preparing all summer; writing recipes, testing recipes, learning to stage the food and taking photos. Luckily for me this has been a family project and my husband has been graciously taking and editing pictures. My husband and daughter have also been great food critics. My little one is already a foodie and loves to give her opinion.
Today’s recipe is in honor of my daughter, Lyla. She loves salmon and has from around the age of 2, when she would gobble down smoked salmon. It always amazed me that she would eat smoked salmon at such an early age as I didn’t even begin to like it until my twenties.
This recipe actually came about because of my craving for moussaka and a pot pie. I was doing some research on Greek food and the flavors and ingredients that are common there; but I also had a pot pie craving. Somehow that morphed into this dish. It takes care of my craving for Greek flavors and the phyllo takes care of the “crust craving” in a healthy way. In addition to this loveliness, you get a hint of sweetness from the grapes, brininess from the olives, salty cheesy goodness from the feta and; of course, a great crunch from the phyllo dough. Yummy! I pair it with a little homemade tzatziki sauce (a traditional Greek cucumber and yogurt sauce).
