  4. Roll out seven-eighths of the puff pastry into a 11- x 16-in (28- x 40-cm) rectangle.
  5. Arrange the salmon mixture down the middle of the rectangle, leaving a 3-in (7-cm) border on each side. Brush the border with a little of the beaten egg and wrap and decorate the coulibiac.
  6. Bake the coulibiac in a 425癋 (220癈) oven for 30-45 minutes until golden.

This became popular in western Europe in the mid-19th century. Described as "a salmon pie in the Russian manner, " authentic versions contain layers offish, buckwheat, hard-boiled eggs, and vesiga, the dried spinal COTd of the sturgeon. In Russia, other fish, such as sturgeon and pike, were sometimes used instead of salmon.

Wrapping and decorating the coulibiac

Fold the shortest ends of pastry over the salmon filling and brush the top of the folded pastry with beaten egg.


Fold the longest sides over the filling to make a long package. Turn the package over and place on a lightly buttered baking sheet. Brush all over with beaten egg.


Make 2 decorative cuts in the top of the pastry. Roll the remaining pastry into a 2- x 12-in (5- x 30-cm) piece, trim, then cut into 3 equal strips. Press the ends together and braid the strips. Lay the braid down the middle of the package, and glaze with beaten egg.
