  • 40g (11/2oz) butter
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • 2 sheets chilled filo pastry taken from a 270g pack of 6 sheets, each 48 x 24cm (19 x 11 inches)
  • 350g (12oz) pack large frozen prawns, defrosted
  • 1/2 bunch spring onions, trimmed, finely chopped
  • Small handful fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons homemade chillied strawberry jam - see recipe here. Or use shop-bought version.
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce


1 Preheat the oven to 200oC (180oC fan assisted), Gas Mark 6. Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan.

2 Unfold and separate the filo pastry sheets and brush the top of each one with a little of the melted butter. Cut each sheet into 32 small squares, each about 6cm (21/2 inches).

3 Gently press one square of pastry into the base of a 24 hole mini muffin or tart tin, or 2 x 12 section tins. Arrange a second square of pastry at right angles to the first to give a petal effect, and add any remaining squares to make a few 3 layer pastry cases.

4 Bake for 6-8 minutes until golden brown and crisp then leave to cool.

5 When almost ready to serve, lift the pastry cases out of the tins and arrange on a serving dish. Reheat the remaining butter and oil in the frying pan, add the spring onions and cook for 2-3 minutes until just softened.

6 Rinse the prawns with cold water and drain well, add to the spring onions, cook for 2 minutes then mix in the chopped coriander, chillied strawberry jam, fish sauce and soy sauce. Continue cooking and stirring until the prawns are piping hot then spoon into the pastry cases and serve.
