|Article in images|
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Ingredients (serves 4)
4 sheets of filo pastry
250g frozen spinach
4 pinches ground cumin
4 very fine slices of lemon
400g fresh or frozen tuna
80g frozen or tinned carrots
Juice of half a lemon
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 pinch chili powder
1/4 sprig of chopped parsley
Salt and pepper
Roll the sheets of pastry out side by side on your work surface and brush them with Olive oil.
Cook the 250g frozen spinach in salted boiling water for 1 minute, leave to cool, drain and squeeze gently.
Place a slice of lemon in the centre of each sheet of pastry and spoon on small piles of spinach. Arrange a 100g portion of the tuna (cut into 4 slices) onto each sheet of pastry. Close up the parcels, making a round shape. Simply bring the edges to meet the top, fold and press together, then turn over so that the smooth side of the parcels is face up.
Bake for 6-8 minutes in the oven at 180°C (Gas Mark 6).
Blend together the carrots (chopped into very thin slices), 4 tbsp Olive oil, the juice of half a lemon, salt, pepper, cumin seeds, powdered chili and parsley in a bowl.
Enjoy the parcels hot or cold, drizzled with the carrot and cumin vinaigrette.
