Jalousie not Jealousy
Jalousie is the name for a window blind. This is the edible variety.
It is a wonderful "sweep up the leftovers and make a fantastic dinner" type meal.
Take one pack of frozen puff pastry and roll out two pieces, one slightly larger than the other (A4 paper size for the large sheet of pastry to be used as the base). Score the smaller piece across to make the "blind".
Take a small tin of salmon, and add any veggie leftovers. Mine included sliced red pepper, chopped green olives, onions in balsamic vinegar and two tomatoes, de-seeded and chopped finely. Bind together with a bit of natural yoghurt / cream / cream cheese / mayonnaise (whatever you need to use up). Season and pile up in the middle of the pastry sheet. Throw over the smaller blanket of pastry, and fold over the base pastry, sealing the edges (a bit of milk works well for the glue)
Bake in a pre heated oven at approximately 220 degrees for 15 minutes until the pastry is puffed and golden.
