I love  the surprise of  cutting through a crisp shell and finding something soft and delicious inside but if I spent my time eating suet crust and all butter pastries I wouldn't be able to keep up with Dex and Gray! What is the answer? For me it's Brik, (brique) pastry and, living in France, it's easier to get hold of than Filo and  much easier to work with. Better still it only has 47 calories a sheet.   This might look really difficult to do but the whole thing was prepared and cooked in under 30 minutes. I used defrosted salmon fillets and steamed them  for a minute in the microwave. You could wrap them in foil and bake for 10 minutes. I part cooked them as I didn't want too much liquid to leach out and make the pastry soggy. Salmon and Avocado Parcels.
