A variation on Prawn, tomato and ginger parcels, using the same pastry – JUS ROL All Butter puff.
Serves 2 for lunch or light dinner
1/2 of 375g JUS ROL All Butter Puff pastry
100g ham – I used a thicker sliced roast ham
1 1/2 tbs of spicy sweet chilli sauce2 large fresh red chilli peppers – deseeded and sliced (didn’t have any other crunchy fresh veg)
1 mozzarella in brine – sliced
generous sprinkling of za’atar all over – can be substituted with dried oregano
few leaves of basil to serve – used my own
Preheat over to 220C (200C for fan assisted over)/Gas 7
Roll the pastry into a rectangle. Place on a metal sheet
Spread the chilli sauce as far to the edges as possible. Evenly distribute small pieces of ham, then the slices of fresh chilli peppers and finally the mozzarella.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes until pastry is risen and golden. I find that leaving it a couple of minutes doesn’t hurt anything.
Slice into four smaller pieces and enjoy. We had this with the fennel soup for starter and there was enough for a light dinner.
