New Recipe: Filo Pastry Prawny Fantasticals

Filo Pastry Prawny Fantasticals
Hello food.....

I have returned from holiday and after spending hours and hours cooking, almost everything is created for the book.

Here is the latest recipe for the blog. A quick and easy one, that can be a nice tea/dinner (depending on whether your from the North or South of the UK) or a nice little starter for a dinner party. It's just filo shells with chilli and coriander prawns! Yumety yum!

Pastry shells going in the oven
What do I need?

4 Sheets Filo Pastry
40g Butter
3 cloves Garlic
4 Red Chillies
150g King prawns Handful fresh Coriander

How do I do it?
1. Cut each sheet of filo pastry into 6 squares (15cm x 15cm)
Filling being prepared
2. Melt some of the butter and brush into moulds. Place one square of filo pastry into mold, with corners hanging over. Brush a little more butter on this pastry and add another square. Repeat this, so each pastry case has 3 layers.
3. Bake cases for 5-10 minutes (until golden brown) at gas mark 5.
4. Finely chop garlic and chillies.
5. Melt remaining butter in frying pan, add garlic and chillies. Fry for one minute.
6. Add prawns, fry for 3 minutes (until prawns are cooked).
    Sprinkle coriander over mixture.
7. Place prawn mixture in each pastry case, serve immediately.

Keep an eye out for the book, ready to buy very shortly!
