I held my first dinner party when I was 14. I wanted to do something a bit exciting and experimental, and for me at 14, this was easy, tasty and a little different. I’ve made a few adjustments to it over the years, e.g. adding Coriander.
Cut each sheet of filo pastry into 6 squares (15cm x 15cm)
Melt half of the butter and brush into moulds. Place one square of filo pastry into mould, with corners hanging over. Brush a little more butter on this pastry and add another square. Repeat this, so each pastry case has 3 layers.
Bake cases for 5-10 minutes (until golden brown) at gas mark 5.
Finely chop garlic and chillies
Melt remaining butter in frying pan, add garlic and chillies. Fry slowly until softened, but do not burn!
Add prawns, fry for 3 minutes (until prawns are cooked). Sprinkle coriander over mixture. Season.
Place prawn mixture in each pastry case, serve immediately.
