Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7. Cook the onion, ginger and pepper in the oil until the onion is soft. Put in a bowl and add the dried chillies, soy sauce, dried apricots and apricot conserve. Set aside to cool. Lightly beat the egg with a small pinch of salt.

  • Lay the pastry on a lightly floured surface and roll to make it slightly thinner.

  • Put the apricot mixture in the middle of the pastry and lay the salmon on top. Brush the edges of the pastry with egg and fold over to make a neat parcel. Trim off any excess pastry.
