4. Cut salmon filets into rectangular-shaped pieces, approx. 2 inches wide by 5 inches long, keeping the filet portions separate.
5. Take 1 sheet of Fillo Dough and place a portion of salmon (6 ounces), on the corner nearest you, of the Fillo Dough. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Add 1/4th of the spinach and basil mixture on top of the salmon fillet and top with 1 tablespoon of the goat cheese spread.
