When Hiro is not working, he loves to cook…for me!
We recently stumbled across a rather curious recipe in the London Japanese publication “Journey” that involved pastry, seaweed and sardines. Naturally we thought….GOTTA TRY THIS!
So Hiro did and it only takes about 20 mins:
We used; Jus–Rol puff pastry sheet,
A couple of sheets of Nori,
A couple of tins of sardines in olive oil,
Katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes)
Spring onion (and chives if you like).
Olive oil and soy sauce to taste.
Preheat your oven to 160º Roll out your pastry sheet and place on a baking tray lined with grease-proof paper. Place your sheets of nori in the centre of your pastry sheet leaving a border around the perimeter.
Drain your sardines and place them evenly across the top of your Nori. Chop up your spring onion and chives and scatter over the sardines. Sprinkle some olive oil over everything.
Chuck it into the oven for 15mins.
Give it a go!! It’s so quick and easy and really tasty. I have added it to my Kitchen if you would like to see more recipes.
