  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 180*C. Slice the salmon fillet lengthways and wrap the lengths in cling film. Roll them to make the pieces more circular. Lay the avocado slices over the pastry leaving a 2cm edge for rolling. Mash the avocado lightly with a fork. Sprinkle over the dill then lay the salmon down the middle of the pastry. Roll up the pastry, crimping each end together, place on a baking tray and brush with the beaten egg. Bake for 25 minutes until golden.
