Fish In Filo Pastry With Creamy Herb Sauce

6 fillets of fresh white fish (1 fillet per serving)
2 tablespoons grated lemon rind
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped mixed fresh herbs of choice (dill, parsley, thyme, fennel)
12 filo sheets
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
Salt and black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Mix cream cheese with fresh herbs and lemon rind. Season generously with salt and black pepper. Brush 1 sheet of filo with melted butter and lay the second sheet on top. Season fish with salt and pepper. Place one fillet in the center. Spread a generous amount of the cream cheese spread on top of the fish, leaving about 2 inches uncovered on each side. Fold uncovered sides inward, then gently roll the filo to secure fish. Place on a greased baking sheet and repeat to use up all the ingredients.

Brush with melted butter and bake for 20 minutes or until fish is cooked and filo is a golden brown color. Serve hot with fresh hollandaise sauce (refer to Asparagus and Hollandaise post for recipe) and a crispy salad.
