    1       x            Spinach Mousse **
    1       x            Salmon Mousse **
    1       c            Beurre Blanc **
    5       lb           Redfish, whole (or other
                         -- firm fleshed fish)
    1       ea           Puff pastry, sheet,
                         -- 12 x 14", frozen or
                         -- homemade
 
        ** See other recipes for Spinach Mousse and Salmon Mousse, and
   Beurre Blanc.
   
        Remove the fish filets from the backbone, keeping the head and
   tail intact.
   
        Roll the pastry into a rectangle and put the head, tail and
   bottom filet on the pastry.  Spread the filet with some salmon mousse
   and then some spinach mousse.  Cover with the top filet.
   
        Paint the pastry with melted butter and trim it down to the shape
   of a fish.
   
        Fold over half of the pastry and paint it with melted butter
   again.  Fold over the other side and smooth into a fish silhouette.
   
        Paint the pastry again and decorate it with pastry scraps cut
   into the shapes of scales and fins.
   
        Paint the entire pastry with additions with butter and put it all
   on a lightly buttered baking sheet.
   
        Preheat your oven to 350 F.
   
        Put the pastry in the oven and bake until golden, about 40
   minutes.
   
        Serve with the beurre blanc.
