Recipe – Anchovy, Olive & Feta Fillo Fingers


Just about everything I’ve ever cooked has been inspired by something I’ve eaten before and this is no exception … my friend Janni usually whips these up to serve with drinks when friends gather at his place. They’re so simple they hardly need a recipe, and everyone’s always eagerly awaiting the next batch hot out of the oven. Fillings are limited only by your imagination, Janni sometimes even makes sweet ones with chopped nuts, dried fruit and candied peel to serve with coffee. You can roll them well ahead of time, or even cook them in advance and quickly reheat them … oven temperature can vary too, so you can pop them in with anything else that’s cooking. How’s that for inspiring!

Makes 12 pieces

Ingredients
  • 3 sheets fillo pastry
  • Extra virgin olive oil, for brushing
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pitted olives
  • 30g Feta, crumbled
  • 4 anchovies in oil, drained

Method
  1. Preheat oven to 150°C.
  2. Lay a sheet of fillo on a clean, dry work bench and brush the top half of it well with oil.
  3. Fold oiled half onto unoiled half and brush with more oil.
  4. Spread the olives along the top about 1cm from the edge.
  5. Roll up as tightly as possible, so it’s the thickness of a finger, and place on an oiled baking tray, seam-side down.
  6. Repeat with another sheet of fillo and the Feta.
  7. Repeat with the final sheet of fillo, laying the anchovies along the top in a row.
  8. Brush the fillo fingers with oil and bake for 30-35 minutes, until well-coloured and crisp; don’t be tempted to remove them too soon as all the layers of pastry need to cook through.
  9. Remove from the oven, cut each roll into 4 piece and serve hot.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are Ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.
