- 30g butter
- 30g plain flour
- 1 cup (250ml) milk
- 1 red onion, cut in thin wedges
- 1 fennel, very thinly sliced, fronds reserved and chopped
- 1 potato, peeled, cut into 1cm pieces
- 75g frozen peas
- Pinch of cayenne pepper
- 2 lemons, rind finely grated, juiced
- 4 thyme sprigs, leaves picked
- 6 flat-leaf parsley sprigs, finely chopped
- Pinch of sea salt flakes
- 200g white fish fillets, cut into 2cm pieces
- 100g skinless salmon fillet, cut into 1cm pieces
- 100g peeled prawn meat, cut into 2cm pieces
- 4 sheets Pampas Puff Pastry, just thawed
- 1 Coles Brand Australian Free Range Egg, lightly whisked
- Step 1Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, until the mixture bubbles. Gradually add the milk, in 3 batches, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until sauce boils and thickens. Remove from heat. Gently stir in onion, fennel, reserved fennel fronds, potato, peas, cayenne pepper, lemon rind, lemon juice, thyme, parsley and salt. Set aside until cooled to room temperature. Stir in the white fish, salmon and prawns and place in the fridge to cool completely.
- Step 2Preheat oven to 200C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Step 3Using a dinner plate as a guide, cut four 21.5cm discs from the pastry. Place one-quarter of the filling over one-half of each pastry disc, leaving a 2cm border. Fold the other half of the pastry over to enclose. Fold in the edge and press to seal. Place on the lined tray. Brush with egg. Cut a slit in the top of each pasty to allow steam to escape.
- Step 4Bake for 25-30 mins or until puffed and golden. Set aside for 5 mins to cool before serving.
- Step 5
Allow additional time for cooling.
