Introduction: Smoked Salmon Bourekas

Bourekas are a typical Israeli snack, usually filled with cheese or mashed potato. 
A friend of mine introduced me to salami bourekas a long time ago (called deli roll in the US), which is just puff pastry, spread with ketchup or mustard, salami put on top and baked. It is delicious! 
So I thought: if you can put on salami, why not smoked salmon
I figured ketchup wouldn't go very well, so I used a different condiment.

This is not a cheap snack, at least not where I live, and I think it is more geared towards adults and not children, as an appetizer.

Step 1: Gathering the Ingredients

For this recipe you need 4 things:

Puff pastry
Smoked salmon

Because the salmon comes in small packages you don't need much of everything else, it is a but hard to gauge. But there are no rules in cooking, so use however much you feel like using!

You need a bit of space for rolling out the puff pastry, it's best to use a cutting board so you can cut also, with the least amount of movement in order not to mess them up.

Step 2: Mix Condiment and Roll Out Dough
