Method

For this Fillo Pastry recipe, take your fresh Fillo Pastry out of the fridge at least 2 hours before use to bring it up to room temperature.

In a large saucepan, heat butter on medium. Sauté the leek and fennel for 3 minutes, until softened.

Add wine, simmer for 2 minutes until it evaporates. Stir in the flour until smooth for approx. 1 minute. 

Gradually add the fish stock, stirring constantly until smooth. Simmer, stirring until the mixture boils and thickens. Simmer for a further 3 minutes and then stir in the cream. 

Remove from heat. Mix in the seafood, peas and season well. Spoon the pie mixture into a baking dish, spreading out evenly. Top with parsley, capers and lemon zest.

Set aside to prepare Fillo Pastry pie top.

Fillo Pastry Pie Top

Working with one sheet of Fillo Pastry at a time, brush liberally with butter, lightly scrunch and place on top of the filling. Repeat with remaining fillo and butter until the pie is covered.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and the filling is bubbling. 

Serve with lemon wedges and salad.
