These Middle Eastern pastries are also known as brik. Filo pastry is stuffed with tuna, parsley, capers and Parmesan, before being deep fried to perfection. They are the perfect finger food.
I had some leftover fyllo dough and decided to try this out. The first one I folded was a little sloppy but then I realized I didnt have to go all the way to the edges when folding and they came out a lot tighter. Instead of frying I baked them at 350F for 25 minutes or a little longer depending on how crispy you want them. I sprayed the baking sheet with oil and then sprayed the briks. Thank you for this recipe! I will make this again. - 04 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
In Morocco we call them Briwat. You can replace tuna with chicken, seafood or ground beef. - 19 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
