Heyy Foodie Friends,
Did anyone watch the Superbowl on Sunday? Lately, it seems that Soccer is also called Football!!?? To be completely honest, I didn’t watch the game. I kinda am not a fan of either one of the teams. I am and always will be a Pittsburgh Steelers Fan. (staying true to the team hehehe) If they are not playing then I’m not watching ahhahahha. But I did watch the Half Time Show and I have to admit I loved it!!. These two performers were amazing!!! They definitely got me up on my feet and dancing to the rhythm.
Coming from a Greek background let’s just say that I like getting up on those tables and definitely dancing the night awayyyy. I am absolutely sure that those of you who have visited Greece have seen us on those tables doing the belly dancing thing!! 🙂
I am usually up early in the morning. Early meaning means I am up at 5 am because my first lesson starts at 6 or 7. But this morning was way too early, I just could not sleep. When I was done eating breakfast, I decided to go ahead and prepare the recipe. I had prepared the Spinach mixture a day in advance so I didn’t have to spend that much time in the Kitchen. I thought just for a second to make my own homemade dough, but It was just way too early to be so I used Phyllo Dough Sheets instead.
This was the first time I actually made this recipe with Phyllo Sheets. It turned out much better than I expected. The lemon filling with the combination of the Salmon was scrumptious. If you don’t like to eat Salmon you can always substitute the Salmon with Tuna.
Have a nice day!!!
