Author Notes

We have been experimenting with Fillo pastry, that extremely thin and delicate pastry that forms such interesting flower-like shapes when cooked in layers. This is a fairly simple appetizer of cream cheese, salmon and capers in a fillo cup. —Tom and Anita Morgan

  • Serves 4
  • 16 6 inch squares of fillo pastry
  • Olive oil spray
  • Dry ranch dressing mix
  • Dried chives
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 4 small strips of smoked salmon lox
  • 12 capers
In This Recipe
  1. Without separating them, cut 5 six inch squares of fillo pastry dough, then gently twist them so they remain on top of each other but at 5 different angles. Gently push them into a muffin tin allowing the corners to fold outward like flower petals. Repeat three times; placing them far enough apart that they don’t touch.
  2. Spray lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with dry ranch dressing mix and dried chives.
  3. Place 3 capers in the center of the rolled salmon. Handle gently as the fillo is delicate.
