Salmon en Croute with Tarragon Cream Sauce

Total time: 35 minutes
     Cooking a whole salmon in puff pastry is a classic party dish.  This is a scaled down version for individual servings.  For a dinner party they can be assembled ahead and baked at the last minute.  The salmon stays moist and perfectly flaky.  I've given the dimensions used in the photos.  If your salmon is a different shape, you need enough pastry to cover it. Trim any excess. 
Yes, It's a bit indulgent - but we all need that occasionally

 Salmon en Croute  prepInstructions:

Note:  Puff pastry can be found in either the refrigerator or freezer section.  You will want 2 sheets about 9 inches square. If they are not big enough you can roll them out a bit (using a rolling pin). 

Note 2:  There are 1020 calories and 85 carbs in 1 sheet of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry.  The nutrition info assumes that is what is used, in it's entirety.
