Anchovy puffs


Flaky, buttery pastry is a great foil for salty anchovies. Served warm or at room temperature, these puffs are just delicious.

You'll need

100 gm anchovy fillets, rinsed and patted dry 1 sheet (375gm) butter puff pastry 2 tsp finely chopped thyme To serve: basil and goat’s curd

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 230C. Pound anchovy fillets with a mortar and pestle to a coarse paste and set aside.
  • 02
  • Roll out puff pastry on a lightly floured surface to 36cm square. Spread with anchovy paste, then cut in half. Cover and refrigerate one piece and cut the other half into six 15cm x 6cm rectangles. Roll up each rectangle lengthways to form a cylinder, brush edges with water and seal. Cut in half and place cut-side down on a baking tray lined with baking paper, pressing lightly to flatten. Cover and refrigerate. Repeat with remaining pastry, then bake both batches until puffs are puffed and starting to turn golden (5-10 minutes), then reduce heat to 170C and bake until golden and crisp (5-10 minutes). Set aside to cool slightly, then serve with basil leaves and goat’s curd.
