LOBSTER FILO TRIANGLES
COOKBOOK: Party & Snack Perfection
This recipe became easy to make when my local deli began selling lobster meat. Due to covid there has been an abundance of lobster available to the public. Our fish export trade with China began to slow down and we kept the lobster!
Us lobster-lovers seemed to be very happy with this outcome!
Easy, delicious and amazing!
12 sheets of filo pastry
125g melted butter
300g cooked lobster meat, cut up
3 tablespoons butter
3 garlic cloves, chopped finely
6 shallots, chopped
2 tablespoon plain flour
4 tablespoons white wine
6 tablespoons fresh cream
Salt & pepper to season
Thaw the filo pastry, keep in the fridge until required
Melt the butter in a pan, add garlic and fry for less than half a min. Add shallots. Add flour and whist until it thickens then gradually add the wine, add the cream until well blended. Add salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
Place the sauce in a deep bowl. Add the cut up lobster and combine well. Set aside.
Take one sheet of filo at a time. Brush with melted butter, fold over & blush with melted butter, and fold over again.
Place a large tablespoon of lobster mixture at the top of the filo strip. Fold pastry diagonally across to form a triangle shape. Continue to fold diagonally and cut off any uneven or short end.
Place triangles on a flat tray covered with greaseproof paper. Brush with melted butter and bake in a moderate oven for 10-15mins or until nice and golden.
