Roasted Sockeye Salmon: Place salmon pieces in a stainless steel bowl. Add oil, salt and pepper. Toss gently to coat salmon. Space pieces apart on a sheet pan and roast salmon for 6 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145°F. Gently remove salmon from sheet pan to cool. Refrigerate.

Flatbread: Cut 8"x6" rectangle of puff pastry. Gently place puff pastry on parchment-lined sheet pan. Dock (poke holes in) pastry. Bake until golden brown.

Assembly: Assemble each fork and knife sandwich in this order: Brush flatbread with ½ oz. (about 1 Tbsp) Green Goddess Dressing. In a stainless steel bowl, toss Mesclun mix with remaining dressing to coat. Arrange dressed greens on flatbread. Arrange salmon pieces in a line in the center of the salad. Arrange remaining ingredients in lines on both sides of salmon.
