  Salmon coulibiac is a traditional Yule holiday dish in Russia because
  it looks like a present: red (salmon) and green (spinach), all
  gift-wrapped in puff pastry. This dish would also be ideal on a New
  Year's Eve or Twelfth Night buffet. Here's a salmon coulibiac from
  Just Off Melrose caterers in Hollywood.
  Cucumber-Dill Sauce (recipe follows)
  Place 2 (15xl2-inch) puff pastry sheets side by side on floured
  board. For each puff pastry, spoon 1/4 Rice Filling evenly over
  center of each pastry. Add Mushroom Spinach Filling evenly on top of
  rice mixture. Distribute flaked salmon evenly over mushroom mixture.
  Top each with remaining Rice Filling.
  Beat egg with half and half in small bowl to make egg wash. Brush
  edges of pastry with egg wash. Fold pastry lengthwise, overlapping
  edges. Tuck ends to seal. Turn over, seam-side down, onto greased
  baking sheet. Make cutouts from remaining (lOx4-inch) puff pastry
  sheets, using pastry cutters. Place on top and sides of pastry roll.
  Make vent in center of roll and brush entire surface and cutouts with
  egg mixture. Bake at 350 degrees 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
  Remove and allow to cool 10 minutes before slicing. Serve hot or at
  room temperature with Cucumber Dill Sauce. Makes about 10 servings.

  Mushroom-Spinach Filling
  1/4 cup butter 1 onion, chopped 1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced 1/4-inch
  thick 1 (IO-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and
  squeezed dry Salt, pepper
  Melt butter in small skillet. Add onion and saute until tender, about
  1 minute. Add mushrooms and spinach and cook 3 minutes. Season to
  taste with salt and pepper.
  Cucumber-Dill Sauce
  2 tbs butter 1/4 cup minced shallots 1 1/2 tsp flour 1 cup half and
  half 1 cup sour cream 1/2 cup chopped fresh dill Salt, pepper 1/4 cup
