Smoked Snoek Corn and Mozzarella Pies

My Smoked Snoek Corn and Mozzarella Pies are just perfect to slowly, in the most delicate way transfer you from the comforts of winter to the excitement of Summer’s arrival.

These Smoked Snoek Corn and Mozzarella Pies are packed with flavor and comforting, familiar tastes, but it does not have the heaviness of a chicken or beef pie. So this time of the year you can either enjoy it with roasted vegetables, mash or like I have, with a refreshing salad.

250 ml/ 1 cup grated mozzarella

To make the filling

Preheat oven to 180 C. In a bowl flake the snoek and remove all bones. Add the corn, cheese, chili and coriander and mix. Add the mayonnaise, taste and adjust seasoning.

Use only one of the rolls from the packet. (Phyllo normally comes on two separate rolls in a box.)

Remove the phyllo from the plastic and lay all layers flat on a work surface. Cut down the middle of all the layers. Now start brushing the top layer with butter. Turn the top layer over, so that you now have two layers “glued” together with the butter. Use a spoon and put the filling in a thin line on the long end of the pastry. Roll up and then roll into a spiral. Secure with a kebab stick and place on a baking sheet, lined with baking paper. Continue with all the other layers.

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Southeast Asian cuisine or pork chops with apples pair well, as well as light seafood, pasta and risotto dishes. Anything containing Fairview goat’s cheese is also a delectable coupling.
