The ingredients (cream cheese and chives for 3 puffs)

Whilst making another batch of Salmon and cream cheese puffs, I discovered a stray half packet of puff pastry in the freezer. As we always have frozen king prawns in the freezer and there was 100g of cream cheese left over, I thought I would attempt a slight variation on the theme.

Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 200° C (400° F - gas 6)

Method

  1. Marinate the king prawns and garlic for about an hour in the lemon juice with a pinch of salt and optionally, the black rice vinegar.
  2. Finely chop the spring onions and add to the cream cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  3. When ready to bake the puffs, chop the king prawns and stir into the cream cheese.
  4. Season the cream cheese mixture with black pepper
  5. Roll out the pastry so it's large enough to accommodate the filling.
  6. Spread the filling over one half of the pastry, wet the edges to help then stick, fold in half and press together with the tines of a fork.
  7. Make a few slashes in the top to allow steam to escape
  8. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until the pastry has risen and is golden brown
