Ingredients

1 lb  salmon fillet
0 1/2 tbsp  olive oil
1 tsp  dried basil
1 pinch  salt and pepper
2 tbsp  light mayonnaise

Puff pastry
2 cup  cold water
0 1/2 tsp  salt
0 3/4 cup  Margarine, 80% fat, unsalted
1 1/4 cup  whole wheat flour
0 1/4 cup  white all purpose flour
4 each  eggs
Directions
Pate
  1. Preheat broiler. Mix oil and seasonings and brush on both sides of the salmon fillet. Place salmon on baking sheet.
  2. Broil on the lowest shelf for 12-15 minutes, until the fish flakes.
  3. Take out of the oven and cool. Remove the skin from the fish.
  4. Blend fish in a food processor with mayonnaise until a smooth pate is formed. Place mixture in a decorator bag and fill the puffs.
  5. If there is any left over, make small florets and bake for 5-10 minutes at 350 degrees F until lightly golden.
Puffs
  1. In a 4-5 cup saucepan over medium heat, bring the water, salt, and margarine to a boil.
  2. Add all the flour at once and mix vigorously with a wooden spoon until the mixture starts to come away from the sides of the pot.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and put the contents in a mixer bowl. With the mixer set on low, add the eggs one at a time, mixing between each egg.
  4. Once everything is incorporated and the dough is shiny, transfer to a decorator bag. Form medium-sized puffs on a lightly greased and lined cookie sheet, placing them 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes, until they become golden in color.
  6. Cool and store in an airtight container.
